    Apple is now accepting pre-orders for the iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad. U.S. customers can also order iPad mini + Cellular models on Verizon, AT&T or Sprint. Prices for the iPad mini are $329 (16GB), $429 (32GB), and $529 (64GB). Cellular models cost $130 more, and all models come in white or black.

    Delivery for pre-orders of Wi-Fi models is expected on November 2nd. Alternatively, customers will be able to purchase at retail locations on that same date. Apple's online store is currently quoting "Mid November" shipping for cellular models in the United States, with other countries seeing "Late November" availability for those models.

    And Apple, for god's sake, where is iTunes 11? This is getting too frustrating!

    I guarantee you it'll be within the next 7 days. They have to update iTunes for the iPad mini, and there's no way they would update iTunes 10 at this point.

    Apple Store APP!

    Ordering via the Apple Store iOS app seems faster than trying to use their web site.

    I really like the look of the white iPad mini. I hope the iPad maxi gets a similar design next time.

    Hong Kong store is back, but all devices (iPad Mini & 4) are "unavailable".

    Hope this isn't going to be another iPhone 5 where it's completely unobtainable for weeks upon end.
