After Apple’s official invitation for another launch, arrival of iPad mini has been even more exciting. October 23 is the date announced for the release of the smaller iPad, but now the customers are more interested to know that when will it hit the stores. So for all of these desperate Apple customers, it is to tell you that iPad mini will be available in stores on November 2, as per the sources.
This information has been leaked by the carrier partners, and retailers, who had previously also, given reliable information about the arrival of iPhone 5 in the stores. According to these sources, iPad mini will ship a week and a half after that unveiling and November 2 is said to be the ship date.
If we observe the trend that iPhone 5 followed that is, Apple announced it on September 12, with pre-orders beginning on September 14 and devices shipping and hitting retail stores September 21, then the release story of iPad mini also seem to be similar to it. As the product will be released on October 23 and will hit the first batch of pre-order buyers on November 2. This similarity takes the claim towards more authenticity.
One more thing which makes the shipping date a bit more obvious is that November 2 lies in the holiday shopping season and Apple will not be leaving this chance this wonderful chance of enjoying considerable success. As in last years holiday shopping season, the fruit company sold 15.43 million iPads.
But again the same thing is to be said that until its not from Apple, its not authentic.
