The iPad mini has proved incredibly popular in its first weekend on sale, with early pre-orders of the device sold out already. The mini pre-orders started at midnight on Friday, and within a few hours only black models remained for the original stock. The mini launches on Friday 2nd November, but those that haven’t placed a pre-order already will be disappointed, as the waiting time currently stands at two weeks in Apple’s online Store.
Ship dates for the black models in the UK store started slipping back on Friday, and by the end of the day only 32 GB and 64 GB models remained for launch day delivery. Those wanting to get their hands on Apple’s tiny tablet right away still have a chance to pick one up on launch day, however, with retail stores opening from 8am to sell their stock.
