    I ordered an iPad mini a few weeks ago. It shipped out yesterday. According to the tracking via FedEx it should be here tomorrow by noon(11/21 wed). It is currently (as of 7am) leaving from Narita-Shi JP. Apple sent a text yesterday which said it would be delivered on 11/26 (mon). Has anyone received conflicting info from apple/FedEx? Which was more accurate? I realize that with the holiday weekend I might as well expect Monday. Oh and FYI I live in a small ky town. Can it really get from JP to KY in 27 hrs?

    i placed order on 5th, original shipping date was for the 27th. when it shipped, apple said i would recieve on the 21st but i guess it missed some fedex shipping cutoff and then it showed as being delivered on the 26th.

    now looking at fedex i may get sooner, but kinda confused lol

    Mine was ordered the 4th, shipped the 16th. When I went to bed last night, the last recorded location was in Japan. When I checked it this morning, it was in Pittsburgh.

    According to FedEx, it is now on a truck to be delivered today! :D

    I was suppose to get it Monday, Nov 26.

    ok so FedEx delivered it to the wrong address and it is now in my hands. had i not called FedEx this would have taken days through Apple instead of hours to resolve. Apple did step up and is sending an Smart Cover and 12W plug. They were sure to inform me that they could not give me anything with the word "Lightning" in it.

    mini is setting up as i type. but my initial thoughts is that it is awesome.
