    Guys & Gals, what is your best guess as to when the new iPad mini w/retina display will be available? I read on one of the web sites that 11/22 is the most likely date. Do you plan to buy one?

    It's on my Christmas list to replace my current mini. I think the release date is on apple's website.

    I plan on upgrading from my current mini. It was sort of the plan all along when I got the first gen. I had said if the RAM is doubled, it gets Retina, and a CPU bump, then I'd upgrade. I was pretty shocked it not only got all three, but was brought up to iPad Air specs. Glad to see the mini app not treated as a entry level device anymore, but nothing less than a smaller form factor.

    I think it going to be available on the the 29th! Apple want to make a statement! Look for a Walmart situation on "Black Friday"!

    Yup. Ordered a 32GB. Says 1-3 days to ship. Delivery by 11/20-11/22. I'm hoping its on the shorter end of the scale.

    Looks like there will be a 32GB 1st gen on Craigslist in the near future.

    Woohoo! I guess it's officially out. However, they don't have what I want over at Best Buy. BB doesn't have anything avaiable for AT&T yet. I'm still on the grandfathered unlimited data plan and I need to use some reward points and gift cards :)

    Ordered a 32 gig WIFI grey model for my wife. It will replace her 16 WIFI mini. She reads a LOT and the Retina display will help with the eyestrain she gets sometimes.

    Ordered mine yesterday and picked up today at my Apple store. It's amazing. I lived with the iPad mini's fuzzy text for a solid year and I feel like this is a dream come true, what the original mini should've been honestly.

    Been playing with mine for two days now. Initially had some difficulty with iBooks but two forum members got it resolved. I can now add new collections. Problem had to do with the organising of my collections on my iPad 4 leaving blank spaces and the "new" option not showing. Sad to see that the wooden bookshelves are no longer available on the IOS7. Funny thing is that the demo models in the Apple Store still have them. The techie there told me that you can not back load the version with the wooden shelves so I think that is a little deceptive. Not sure I like the new "flat" larger icons with IOS 7 especially on a graphically superior tablet. Otherwise I really, really LOVE this tablet. Got the 128 GB version.
