Cellular iPad mini/iPad 4 shipping thread for Canadians

Let's share our order's shipping evolution here.

For me:

Pre ordered my iPad 4 64Gb black WiFi + LTE on October 26th at 3AM. Still at "Processing order" so it hasn't shipped yet and everything I have for availability is "November".

What are yours?

1. Pre-ordered Oct 26 - iPad mini 16GB White Wifi + LTE, Late November

2. Pre-ordered Oct 30 - iPad mini 32GB White Wifi + LTE, Late November. Nano-sim for pre-order #2 shipped Nov 12 and received Nov 13, although it had an original delivery date of early Nov but received an email from Apple advising it was changed to Nov 26 - Dec 3 so that it will be shipped around the same time as the Mini.

I just read another thread that someone in the UK was told they will be in store Nov 26. So I am now hoping my pre-orders will arrive week of Nov 26.

Pre ordered 64g Black iPad 4 LTE on October 26th at 10 am Atlantic time and a 16 g Black iPad mini Wifi, engraved on the 27th. The Mini is in Ontario and scheduled to deliver Friday, the Status on the iPad 4 LTE is still at processing. When I spoke to CS agent yesterday I was told they still don't know when they will be shipping to Canada but they should start processing around the end of this week with potential for delivery late next week. Once the shipping process starts I was told it should take 7 days.
For what it's worth I was able to get shipping expedited and received a confirmation that my order was changed.
Delivery date for iPad 4 showing late November.

I hope the other folk is right. I can't wait for mine, almost 3 weeks already.

Same story as the rest of you... Ordered the morning that orders opened up, has said "Late November" since then. Sucks the US people get theirs first!

Am I the only one with "November" instead of "Late November"?

Apparently, my first 64GB Slate LTE showed Late November even though I got my email back stamped two minutes into the preorder.

I just returned my wifi-only iPad because I decided that I would like the LTE version instead. Called 2 Apple stores to try and get a rep to give me a hint of when it could be available at the store, but no luck. They both gave me the same vague "late November" reply.

I was really hoping to be able to walk into a store this weekend or sometime next week and come out with one, but considering how the "late November" estimate hasn't budged at all for Canadians (and nobody seems to have gotten any shipping notifications), I'm wondering if I would get it around the same time as every other Canadian order if I placed an online order now. I hate being iPad-less!

Yeah, if only we could have a date or something but unfortunately, it's not the case.

I just looked at the US Apple store and they list two weeks backorder for the ipad mini LTE. Guess they get it way before anyone else, because the Canadian, UK and Aussie stores all still list Late November. I love being an American in Canada and getting screwed by the border.

I'm in Montreal. Placed my order Oct 29 (iPad4 LTE - 64GB Black) and it still says "Late Nov". I will call the Apple store downtown and hope...

I am travelling to Vancouver next week (Tue) and will try again on Monday. Was hopeful to have one in hand prior to travelling.

I sold my iPad 2 3G over a month ago in prep for this and I'm going thru withdrawal!

Called the Apple store people last night, and got nothing more useful than the information on the website. I will confess to being a little "terse" with the customer service rep (which I apologized for, and commented to him that I knew it wasn't his fault, but I was just frustrated with the lack of information). Anyway... He tacked a Smart Cover on my order for free, and that actually left China last night, about 4 hours after my call.

Nothing at the Apple store in downtown Montreal. New news as to Canadian release either.

Let me know if anyone else has any luck. This is a bummer for me.

The apple store at the eaton centre just re-opened today after it closed for renovations all last week. I wonder If they're carrying any lte models? My order is still processing as well and I may cancel and just pick up a wifi model and tether it with my iphone. I have a 6gb plan on my phone per month.. Do you guys think that's sufficient for tethering?

I have 6 gigs of data for my iPhone and planned on just tethering..... Until I actually did it for a week... It is a huge battery drainer for the iphone...

I may have to pop down to Bellingham Washington today and buy a AT&T version since there is no release date in sight for Canada

Oh, and my Telus Nano SIM shipped today as well, apparently... Great, I'll have everything but the iPad! Hopefully that means it will be here soon too.

I did the tethering and it's not too bad, as long as you don't do it for too long, or have ac power source. However, I want to get the LTE model and plan to use the mini for in-car GPS navigation.

Wow, that's some progress! Good for you!

No such luck with my mini 32GB White. Still "Available: Late November"
