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 Amazonâ€™s 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 miniâ€™s 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.
