Only Apple knows how many they made- But it is the same assembly lines that are creating brand new full sized iPads, iPod touches, and a brand new iPhone that is only a month removed from launch- so if anything, it would be substantially less in quantity than the iPhone 5 was- which sold out in an hour- and I would also assume less than the original iPad (when there wasnt another iPad or a month old iPhone)- which also sold out near-instantaneously.
Those are assumptions, sure- but educated ones.
I think the mini will sell ok, but one can't help but wonder if it was priced at $299, if it would've sold out in minutes or hours.
We'll never know. What I do know is that I haven't seen a brand new apple product (including almost all iOS refreshes) not sell out instantly in a long, long time.Edited by Andysol - 10/27/12 at 1:21pm
