I am on contract with Orange, I ordered a nano sim so I am ready to go when the mini arrives. They had to put it down as an Iphone 5 as the mini wasn't listed on the system.

After my evening check mine has finally moved to "Preparing for Shipment" so I'm a little happier now. Hopefully I shall see an email in the morning

Hiya,

Newbie Android kind of defector here. Finally my shipment of a 32GB slate LTE has moved to preparing for shipment, along with its smartcover and nano SIM that I needn't have ordered.

Fingers crossed for any day next week.

I'm having a guess at units bought alone are being direct / drop shipped from China whilst those bundled with cases, SIMs etc are being consolidated in the UK.

32GB White Wifi + LTE, its at the airport, due at my desk by the 6th of December!

Kinda glad it is not coming this week, as my birthday is on Monday, so it gives me time to appreciate whatever my wife gets me, instead of playing with my mini all day!

So pre-ordering was a complete waste of time.

I could have picked one up at an Apple Store today but I now have to wait until next Wednesday to take delivery of the one I pre-orderd no less than FIVE weeks ago because it's sitting at Pudong Airport in China waiting for a flight! It's marked as shipped therefore cannot be cancelled.

What a farce Apple! I am not impressed.

Yep! Just walked into Apple store Manchester, walked out with a 64gb Black LTE mini!

I preordered at 0801 first day, still no movement on mine.

On the plus side, the Mini is awesome! On the minus side there's a big silver ding in the bezel right below the home button . When I get my preordered Mini, assuming its good nick, I'll return this for a refund and keep the preorder. Meanwhile, I'm going to have fun with this ding or not

Congratulations! They are brilliant; I had two weeks use of the Wi-Fi model before returning it to await the arrival of the cellular model, and enjoyed it a lot.

Concerned to hear that Quality Control issues have not yet been resolved though.
