First LTE iPad mini tablets to arrive on November 16th

First LTE iPad mini tablets to arrive on November 16th
The 7.9-inch Apple iPad mini is among the most wanted devices for the upcoming Holidays, and soon it will ship in its 4G LTE version. The real question is when exactly and good news is that it might be sooner than expected. Some of the first pre-orders are now confirmed to arrive on Friday, November 16th.

Earlier, customers reported shipping times between November 21st and November 23rd. Apple did not announce a specific release date for the iPad mini with LTE, but said that it expects to ship the 4G version of the tablet around two weeks after the launch of the Wi-Fi only version.

Prices for the LTE iPad mini start from $459 for the 16GB version and go up in $100 increments for the 32GB and 64GB version. The Wi-Fi-only version of the tablet is priced starting from $329.

post number 2 you are exactly right..just goes to show you how much post number one knows whats going on...the ipad mini is sub par and over priced in all aspects from the lowest resolution of any 7 inch tablet and probably the slowest processor of any tablet in the current market..other than being 2 inches smaller than the ipad2..its the same thing.and adding lte will only sweeten the deal for apples piggy bank by adding 130 to the already over priced 329 price tag

Is that why your tablets are LAGGY? The nexus 7 has a LAGGY browser and ipad mini loads we pages really fast. Apples new JavaScript has been ignored. It's really fast and smooth. Infact pinch to zoom is not and will never be as snappy on android as it is on WP and iOS. If WP gets more apps it will crush android and will give ios tough competition. Trust me, ios devices are about the software which is excellent, stable, very capable and secure. About the UI well, things are about to change for good.

Interesting. I ordered an iPad mini for a friend on October 26th as well. Yet my order status has delivery on November 21st. I wonder how many October 26th orders will have the earlier ship date?

I suspect you are not completely out of money. Probably more like higher priority items are ahead of iPad mini, eh? Shoes? Handbag? Clothes? Going out with friends? And, and, and.

Good catch! A thumbs-up to you. I feel better about not getting as much love from Apple for my mini order.

I have checked a few other web sites tat were running a similar story. It seems they were all linking back to the same source. I have checked with 2 other friends who ordered the LTE iPad mini on October 26th and they are showing delivery on November 21st. I am not claiming predictive ability; just that I doubt LTE iPad mini orders placed on October 26th will deliver on November 16th. Anyhows, the 16th is around the corner, so we will know soon enough.
