So I've never pre-ordered an item from Apple right when they went on sale. I am planning on pre-ordering the iPad Mini on Friday when they start. But I have two questions. First, what time do we think pre-orders will begin? 12am eastern or 3am eastern? Also, how does shipping on pre-orders work? If the iPad Mini will be released on November 2nd, would pre-order ship on November 2nd or would they be shipped earlier so that they arrive to customers on the 2nd? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
