I have a 64gb Verizon cellular IP3. I didn't feel I could get a good trade in so I am keeping it. Saw that the black mini was available at 5:15 am this morning, so I ordered it. I just want to be part of the excitement. I know, get a life. I am also getting a Parrot helicopter from apple for Christmas. It is controllable from an Ipad. The smaller mini will make it easier. Am I stretching a little?
