When will it be available to pick up in Store without pre-order does everyone think?

Just spoke to Covent Garden and they are still saying 'Late November'...

Quick question. There seems to be two sets of delivery times:

30th Nov to 7th December
and
4th December

For those of you with the 30th November to 7th December option, are you just awaiting the iPad or is there anything else bundled with your order?
Mine is just the iPad mini. I ordered accessories separately to avoid the mini being delayed. They arrived first, oh the irony!

Curious. Mine has a Smart Cover and Sim on the order. Neither have arrived early. Do you think cancelled them and leaving just the mini on it would make it arrive earlier?

I'd leave it if I were you. You're only talking about the difference of a few days and who knows what might happen if you changed it now.

In case anyone's interested, removing the Smart Cover and SIM from my order means it should now be here in the 30th November - 7th December time frame.

I've got a feeling that it was the SIM card holding things up, but lets see if there's any change next week...

Same here, deleted the sim and the order changed from 4th Dec to 30th - 7th.

So does that mean you guys were definitely going to get it on the 4th, now you may have to wait 'til the 7th?!

Ok so how about this for a theory:

Apple clearly have a standard window now for iPad mini deliveries in the UK: 30th Nov to 7th Dec. iPads will no doubt arrive throughout this period.

But by having multiple items in a single order, It looks like their retail system no longer applied the generic window and had to actually calculate a specific delivery date that they could commit to meeting: 4th December.

I think it quite likely therefore that most our minis will arrive on or before the 4th.

Something's afoot, I just tried to check the status (as I sadly do every morning lol) and I'm constantly met with this -

We're sorry, but our Order Status services are extremely busy right now. Please try again later.

Thank god, i thought there was something seriously wrong with me checking my order status every day. Now it seems I am not alone hehe.

Will be mildly annoyed if I have to wait an extra week... Firstworldproblem!

Can't be bothered to wait 3 weeks for the 16gb black cellular mini I ordered yesterday.

Have decided to keep the 32gb white WiFi only I got by chance last week as it was the only one left in the store. No doubt a popular version if I decide to sell on when the retina version comes out sometime next year.
