    I guess that puts the rumor that the Mini will be a flop to rest. You really can not judge as we have no idea of what Apple had for inventory. Glad I got my order in early!

    Just curios but is it sold out or is it that it simply wouldn't make the nov 2 delivery cutoff before?

    I've ordered new Apple items thinking it was a two week delay but it ended up shipping in a few days so maybe "2wks" is their way of saying "we've got them, but we won't be givin you the free expedited event shipping".

    Subject line was misleading. They are not sold out.

    Same thing with iPad 3 and I walked into a best buy at launch day and picked one up easily

    They make so many of these things now it doesn't matter

    Agreed, seeing that its not selling out, is not a good indicator of its success/failure. I'm not making excuses but rather saying its not a good metric to measure the product's success

    No, they are not sold out. This is exactly why, I said the subject line was misleading.

    likely they did not produce enough of them for launch, so perhaps they want buyers to think it is so hot they now have to wait....this is not the case of course our infinite wisdom would suggest...

    Most Apple products move to 2 week wait within 20 mins-2 hours of preorder starting. iPad Mini: 6 days. They will be easy to find.

    Ok you are correct. I was thinking announcement, not preorder date. My apologizes. Still, 3 days is much longer than usual for an iOS device.

    The Nintendo Wii was artificially sold out. I suspect the same thing happened with the Surface.

    The market is always manipulated.

    That said, I'm having a hard time deciding if I want a mini or an iPad 4.

    Agree.
    My guess is there will be more than enough available Friday in store if you walk in. Maybe a certain config will sell out here and ther, but they will have some stock on both mini and v4's to sell ya.

    Wii U = Handheld console innovation
    Surface = smart cover keyboard, innovation i think
    Ipad mini = Smaller Ipad 2

    get the mini, the ipad 3/4 is too heavy when you add a case/smart cover to it

    I find this very hilarious & completely predictable.

    Hilarious? Yes, before I joined this forum I browsed it regularly. When the topic of a smaller iPad came up, there was literally an avalance of naysayers. Thousands of posts swearing it would never happen, and how useless one would be.

    Now we see a completely different picture. I love to be entertained by the Apple communities predictable hypocrisy :)
