As I stopped in an Apple store today I overheard a couple of the employees speaking about the 'later in November launch' of the retina iPad mini. Their discussion reminded me of a similar one I heard when people were waiting for the white iPhone. They basically were discussing the fact that some customers have been coming in and buying an iPad Air and actually admitting that they plan to return it when the retina mini is released. The employees both seem to think the iPad mini with retina will receive a significant delay, but obviously it is only speculation on their part. I just can't help but wonder if it is the white iPhone 4 situation all over again. I couldn't imagine that Apple would make the same mistake, especially considering that a long delay would cause them to miss the holiday rush but hey, who knows?
