    Default 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.

    Got email this afternoon stating a delivery date of the 15th! this will make up for the delayed shipping of the iPhone 5
    On January 24th, Apple Computer will introduce Macintosh. And you'll see why 1984 won't be like "1984."

    No disrespect to people out there who buy the Wi-Fi only model but I'm not sure what could possibly make someone want to buy something so limited... The whole point is to be able to jump online and have access to the internet anywhere not just where a Wi-Fi connection is available. That is the beauty of these tablets, internet access anywhere any time.

    You could do that but then you eat into your data plan for your phone which isn't usually very big (depending on what country and what provider you are with). Isn't using the personal hotspot not as quick as having a sim card in the device directly?

    How about losing data when a call comes in for Sprint/Verizon owners of the iPhone? Of course if you have one of their newer high end Android phones this is not an issue.
    Not a waterboy for Android OR Apple.
