So I tried 3 different stores in Toronto and none had even received their shipments of the ipad mini yet. [edit: I was not referring to the Apple Store]. So they all opened up 2 hours early for no reason at all. Thankfully, I didn't wait in line. I asked 1 store manager and he told me that people did wait in line (for how long, I don't know) only to be told they haven't received them yet. For those curious, I don't think there is much demand at all for this product. All 3 stores were virtually empty at 8:30 am, except for employees. I did see one guy buying a full-sized ipad though.
