    Haven't seen any in stock at Apple store or Best Buy.
    Has anybody been able to get one?

    nothing...i have been refreshing apples site nonstop since yesterday morning, and have been calling all best buys and apple stores. nothing in all of Texas actually. I'm hoping today is the day.

    Some of these people that work at the Apple Store are clueless or they just don't care..

    right, but not one apple store has shown any stock online in all of Texas from what I can tell. I have been checking nonstop.

    Florida feels your pain. Hasn't been a Retina avail in any Apple Store in Florida and none of the Best Buys in the central part of the state had them either.

    In the UK I've seen all WiFi available in both colours, and 32GB Cellular available in both colours.

    I'm hoping the 128GB Cellulars appear soon.

    Same in Minnesota too. Chicago and KC both have stock, but we have nothing. I noticed that Texas didn't either. What's really odd to me is that even the flagship Best Buy (on 494 right by BB corporate headquarters) didn't get any either. That makes me think it wasn't a BB decision which stores got some.

    Nothing in Texas...I browsed around and there WERE some available in Arkansas yesterday. I seriously considered it for a moment.

    They're showing out if stock now, though.

    They work at an Apple Store get a grip.

    If it's your job, it should during working hours.

    I think it's pretty clear that Apple doesn't tell store employees much of anything. How the hell are they supposed to know when they're coming in?

    so you think Apple didn't tell store employees the morning of to get ready we have minis coming and people will be using the online tool? Does a ghost magically set the stock aside, print invoices and tape it to the boxes?

    I spoke with Apple Store (Stonebriar) employee yesterday around 5 PM and they said they had not received any stock. And as usual they could not tell when they were expecting any.

    I was thinking that I was late to the party and all the iPad minis were snagged but based on what I have seen, it looks like none of the Apple stores in Texas got any stock at all.

    Little Rock, Arkansas store is showing availability now.

    Correct - I was checking constantly all day yesterday and there was never any stock anywhere, leading me to believe it simply hasn't arrived yet. No other explanation why two of the largest metroplexes in the country didn't get anything on "launch day".....

    I think that they're told to expect minis at some point during the week but they don't tell them exactly when. Their business model is rooted in secrecy and that would compromise it. When the minis arrive that's when the orders are coming in so obviously they know what to do. Before that no one can order anything from the store so why do they need to know about it?
