I just don't understand why people need to be intentionally thick. My daughter wants an iPad for Christmas and I thought it would be good for her to check out the new Mini beside the full size iPad. I called the King of Prussia Apple store this morning to inquire when they might have some display iPad Minis available to see/touch. The associate replied with something along the lines of "Apple doesn't provide products ahead of launch". I said I understand they won't have any for sale but when would they be available in the store as a display for people to check out. The associate's reply was "Display units won't be available until the product is launched." To which I replied, so they will be available in store as displays on November 2nd? And she replies "Yes." Seems like it would have been a much quicker conversation if the original reply was "Display units will be available in the stores on November 2nd", no?
