iPad mini LTE backorder times

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Just looked at the US store and they show two weeks for the LTE iPad mini.  Canada still shows Late November.  Ditto for the Brits and Aussies.  So much for the worldwide release of the product. Looks like the LTE mini was only released in the US according to the Apple store.  Thank you again Apple for not being upfront and transparent about this release.

"iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular and fourth generation iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular will start shipping a couple of weeks after the Wi-Fi models, beginning in the US on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon."

I believe 'beginning in the US' was mentioned in the event

I was responding to your statement that Apple was somehow not upfront about releasing the LTE mini to the US first. I'm sorry that you feel that my pointing out that they had in fact stated this in the event and in their news release makes me a troll for that was not my intent. I'm not really sure what your looking for, I thought that clearing up a misconception would be helpful.

Thank you for you gracious welcome to the forum

Wow, I did a Google search trying to find a date for a Canadian release of the LTE iPad Mini and came across this posting.  I have to say, you asked the question, and he answered.  You are being a total dick and acting like a 4 year old.  Grow up.

 

Your attack was so out of line that I actually spent time signing up for this forum to tell you that.  Take a step back and think about your behaviour.  Wow...

I was able to get my hands on a black LTE Att mini 16 gig but i hate it and im going back to white. I have never been without my iPad even a single day since I first bought one in 2010.

Yup, it's a concerning matter with all these slippy sloppy product release dates/ shipping/ etc. The past few months have been quite a concern. Quite.

Australia now showing 1-3 business days for iPad 4 LTE but still 2 weeks for iPad mini LTE as you mentioned for Australia.

So now we know why Apple waited so long for an LTE iPhone, let alone 3G iPhone. Now hopefully all the whiners can (insert something rude here).

OK so still showing 2 weeks in all locales. But it was showing 2 weeks more than 2 weeks ago? What's happening?

This has got to be the worst paper launch in Apple's recent history.

I guess more or less gone are the days when Steve would show the most desired slide at the end of his presentations:
