Cellular Capable Retina iPad Mini Models Begin Showing Up at US Apple Retail Stores
Just one day after the surprise launch of the Retina iPad mini, small amounts of stock of the cellular-capable models of the device have begun trickling into Apple retail stores throughout the US. The company has been offering Personal Pickup of online orders starting on the 12th but until recently, the service has been limited to Wi-Fi models. Model selection remains very limited and many stores have yet to show any available cellular models but availability should improve over time as Apple delivers more stock to its stores.
Although Apple retail stores in several other countries did have stocks of the cellular-capable Retina iPad mini at launch, the company’s US stores didn’t have any available. Online orders for the Retina iPad mini through Apple’s US stores launched with 1-3 day shipping estimates on the 16 and 32 GB Wi-Fi models with larger capacity Wi-Fi and all cellular models showing 5-10 day shipping. Several customers who placed orders for Wi-Fi models have already seen their orders shipping directly from China, with deliveries scheduled for as early as next week.
Have you managed to see a cellular-capable Retina iPad mini in store? Did you end up using Personal Pickup for a Wi-Fi model instead?

Didn't have any to sell, just three to display in the Gilbert, AZ store today. Still looking...

The white iPad Mini 2 cellular looks better IMO. The white plastic piece covering the antenna blends very well with the aluminum back.

Looks like only Scottsdale/Camelback store is the only one who has had, and sold their stock according to apple.com. I may just order it online instead. I'm not in a huge hurry, but it would of been nice to pick one up locally.
