Apple Starts Shipping 4G iPad minis
If you preordered the LTE-capable iPad mini last month, there's a good chance you may have received an email this morning from Apple with news that your tablet has shipped.
Some of our readers have shared details pertaining to their shipping notices, including estimated delivery dates of November 16th. Should the devices begin arriving this Friday, that would be several days ahead of the originally anticipated first delivery date of November 21st.
Shortly after the iPad mini launched two weeks ago, Apple released sales figures showing that in total, three million iPad units (iPad mini and iPad 4) have been sold since the opening weekend of sales. Those figures did not include the sales of iPad mini with 4G connectivity.
As of this writing, it isn't clear if the Wi-Fi only model of the iPad mini is poised to outsell the 4G capable version. In the coming weeks, more details will likely be apparent with regard to the models consumers are most eager to get their hands on.
