The iPad mini went on pre-order today. The iPad mini Wi-Fi ships on November 2. The iPad mini with LTE has only a unspecific release date. First customers got now a delivery date that falls on Black Friday 2012.
The iPad mini went on pre-order earlier today. The white iPad mini Wi-Fi is already sold out and ships with 2 weeks delay. According to 9to5Mac the iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular will ship on November 23, which is Black Friday 2012. If this date will hold up remains to be seen. The day before Black Friday is a Holiday (Thanksgiving).
We do not expect to see a Black Friday iPad mini deal. The product is too new and supply appears already tight. What we will see are iPad 2 deals and also iPad 4 deals. The Apple Black Friday 2012 sale will also feature the iPad 2 and iPad 4 in the always very short list of Apple Black Friday deals.
You can still pre-order the new iPad mini on the Apple Store.
Black Friday 2012 is on November 23, 2012. Once again the whole month of November will be the filled with great Black Friday deals and sales.
