Just got my iPad mini at Walmart!

Got it today in exchange for my Nexus 7 16gb version. I went in to exchange for the 32gb Nexus 7 and saw the iPad mini instead and got that. I got the black 16gb iPad mini.

First impressions is that it is indeed a little fat like what the reviews said. I can hold it with my thumb and two fingers and the rest sitting on the back. It's comfortable to hold IMO. The Nexus 7 is more natural to hold and the display is more crisp on the Nexus but the Mini's not bad.

edit - here's proof!

edit 2 - I'm at school so I can't post any pics up. Will do when I get home in a couple hours.

edit - ok finally back home from school. ...And yes, I only had my iPad mini to take a picture.

Really? Not doubting some guy that started a thread and hasn't even replied in it except for the initial post? Ok.

Walmarts POS system wouldn't have even allowed it to be sold. This is BS.

Thats odd so far all the reviews I've read say that the Mini is really thin... Like almost ipod touch thin.

The OP does not have the unit.

Simply paid up front to collect on release day

What a silly childish liar!

Wouldn't expect a regular since a year to lie... maybe like others said, paid upfront for pick up on Friday... Will wait to see if there are pics, but I doubt it.

He said pics will be up in a couple of hours.... By a couple of hours he means about 48 hours.

At school but you have a receipt that says 11:33 CDT as the time of purchase and then you created this thread ~45min after that. Yet you can post a picture of the receipt but not the box?

I'm just curious how the SKU would even be live in Walmart's system since they don't go on sale until 11/2.
