Saw the iPad mini in the Apple store for the first time on Friday. Real nice machine. Now my woman wants one. I'd like one too, form and weight are great. Need a retina screen though, I use my iPad for reading and business documents and sharp text is a necessity. I see the iPad Mini is given a "don't buy" because a new model is likely to be announced, with some pegging an early October presentation and release. Does anyone have any more solid information on when the iPad mini 2 is likely to be released? Will it be released in October? Second question, is the demand high for these mini iPads? I don't follow iPad news or forums at all. Can you just walk into an Apple store a day or two after release and get them? Or is it going to be more like an iPhone release where scalpers buy up everything, lineups the night before, and all the rest of the nonsense. Any info is appreciated.
