    It arrived today. Opted for the white 64 GB WiFi version. Figure there are so many hotspots out there the 3/4G wasn't
    necessary. In the event I need to connect I'll use my Virgin Mobile Hotspot.

    Backed up my iPad2 and restored the Mini from the backup. Everything is working perfectly. So far I'm loving it, so
    much lighter than my 2.

    i bought one too, a 16GB, and I have this problem:

    Anyone having problems with the wifi connection speed of the Mini Ipad. I tested the Mini Ipad speed compared to my Ipad 1 and to my Ipad 3 with the QIP Speed test application. While I had values around 16 Mbits/s for the two Ipads, I got only around 0.5 Mbits/s for the Ipad Mini. I tested it many times and it's always the same results. My Ipad mini performs slowlier because of that.

    Have you moved to IOS 6.1? It may help.

    Thanks for answering a question I have not asked yet. I bought a mini. I was hoping that I could do a backup of my iPad2 and do s restore to the mini. That would save me tons of work.

    Did you try 'Settings => General => Reset => Reset Network Settings' yet?

    Is it to late to return it for a different one? I was looking up speed tests on youtube for ipad 4 vs mini. The mini is currently the fastest ipad there is. Mine is super fast, no problems, so maybe you just got a bad one?


    also OP could you tell me about these hotspots? I only use wifi at home and school, I have yet to use it anywhere else.
