    I agree. I posted my updates in the order thread, but I ordered my 32g Verizon Slate Gray on the 25th (Tues) and it's out for delivery today. I did have expedited 2-3 business day shipping, but still, very fast!

    I am glad to hear this, as I'm considering exchanging my ipad mini retina for a cellular model. I am sick of tethering to my iPhone and draining the phone battery.

    Mine has whisked from China over the weekend and is on schedule for delivery today. Hoping it has a better screen than the yucky ones I've returned.

    Have you checked the serial number out yet to see when it was born?

    Sunday 24th to Saturday 30th

    Mines a week 49 so Sunday 1st to Saturday 7th. So as it shipped on the 1st it must be hot off the press. Hope they let the glue dry first :)

    Anyone know if target will be getting the cellular rMini model in 64gb or even 128gb?

    Weird. I ordered one on the same day from Apple's website -- a 128 GB space gray Verizon version and it's still listed as being processed.

    I ordered a 16gb wifi white rMini on Dec 6, it just arrived at my fed ex an hour ago.

    china -> hong kong -> memphis -> greensboro nc -> wilmington nc

    Guess I got lucky in memphis, didn't get affected by the snow. In fact the estimated arrival according to fed ex was dec 11

    I also ordered a smart case (shipped from harrisburg pa. I guess it missed the snow there as well.

    Ordered a 128GB AT&T rMini on 12/4...shipped on 12/7; scheduled for 12/12.

    Original schedule showed 12/13 - 12/18. If only the rMBP was that quick...oh well...

    My order for a 128 GB Verizon iPad Retina placed on the morning of Black Friday was shipped and is scheduled to arrive on Dec. 12, so it will be almost two weeks total.

    FYI (I know this isn't the iPhone place, but since we are chatting about Apple delivery):

    Apple now shows 24 hour to ship all flavors/colors/carriers for the iPhone 5s/c (except t-mob and unlocked which is still 3-5 days)

    Ipad Mini w/ Retina@ Target

    I have to say I'm a little disappointed that Walmart.com has the Ipad mini with retina in stock and Target still doesn't. Is it really still that constrained or is Target just that far down on the Apple totem pole?

    I picked up my slate gray 32gb retina mini this morning at Target in east bay.

    You have to call and ask them to check. If you go in they can also check stores within a certain radius for you too. San Francisco Target had 10 slate gray 32gb. There also seems to be lots of 16gb in stores.

    Well it turns out 16GB wasn't enough for my iCloud restore. I had a 32GB mini (first gen) and thought I really didn't need it. Well I do.

    In any event, I ordered a 32GB Wifi white rMini on 12.11.2013 and it arrived today 12.13.2013

    Not to bad.
