    I ordered mine the night of the release. It says its going to be here on November 2nd but it is still showing "preparing for shipping" Should I be concerned if not getting it on the 2nd?

    No. As someone else pointed out, FedEx and the other major carriers can get an item anywhere in the world within two days.

    Not to worry. check again. It will now show that it's shipped, along with a tracking number. In my case, it's UPS for the Mini's. Delivery tomorrow!

    I ordered mine one hour after the preorders opened on October 26 and it told me then "ships within two weeks." Just checked in now and it shows "Delivers November 16." That's three weeks from time of order for a wifi only mini ipad. Shipping is stretching, not shortening.

    Still showing November 16. No personalization, not 4G LTE, just plain old wifi.

    You waiting a bit too long...the number of units available for pre-order was depleted, so you got pushed back.

    Yeah I heard the white ipad mini sold out in minutes (probably because the black model sctaches so easy like the black i5?)

    The black mini took a couple days to sell out..

    Mine arrived at 12:14pm

    First thoughts..
    Front glass display feels cheap.
    Super light -Nice!
    Size - Perfect!
    Seems quite a bit faster than my current iPhone 4
    Display, looks a little bit sharper than my iPad 2, not near as crisp at iPhone 4 but colors are vidid and sharp. I don't forsee any future annoyance by "going back to old" technology.

    It came this evening around 6. My wife is going to be one happy camper when she gets home from work.

    I think the is a gap between the front glass and the LCD. This may be leading to that feeling of "cheap". It is not cheap at all.

    I agree-- that the glass didn't feel cheap either. I had a chance to play with one yesterday and it was really nice. I also thought that the screen picture was more crisp and clear than my iPad 2.
