Despite some pundits, critics, and even Apple fans saying it was a little too pricey, AppleInsider reports that the iPad mini has already completely sold out online ahead of the November 2 launch. Currently, if you try to order any iPad mini model online, you will be told that there is a two-week shipping delay. AppleInsider notes that the white and silver version sold out pretty much immediately, while the black and slate models took around 35 hours. All this despite Amazonís best efforts to really push the advantages of the Kindle Fire HD over the iPad mini all weekend, with a big front page advert comparing the Kindle Fire HD to the iPad mini. Amazon even goes so far as to post a quote from Gizmodo on the front page ad, which references the lower pixel density of the iPad miniís screen in comparison to the Kindle Fire HD, as well as pointing out that the Kindle Fire HD has dual stereo speakers while the iPad mini only has a mono speaker. The stark difference in price is also highlighted: the Kindle Fire HD costs just $199, whereas the iPad mini costs $329.
