    iPhone 5 orders in North America started at 00:01 Pacific Time. So likely the same for the Mini, which would be 03:00 Eastern Time.

    Correct:

    I overslept, not waking up until 3:18 A.M. NY Time, but the units were not yet sold out. I just purchased my iPad 4 - 64 GIG AT&T Black WIFI+Cellular model online. I'm a little disappointed as this will not ship until mid November, while the wifi only units (I know as I almost accidentally ordered one) ship now and should be delivered by 11/02. I was a little worried about this, as yesterday the web site reported that the mini Cellular models were shipping late. Anyway, I'm one of those iPad 3 users who lucked out. As of yesterday, it had been 29 days since I purchased the iPad and the store let me turn it in for a gift card with the exact purchase amount. I used it for the new purchase. The store did confirm that this unofficial policy was limited to 30 days, so I just made it! I wouldn't have been pissed had I not been eligible for the free upgrade, but it was too much not to pass up. I'll try no to go through iPad withdrawal for the next 3 weeks.

    Well, in the grand scheme of things, this is a minor problem. You have to think like that to avoid being POed. :)

    That was the original expected delivery date for the 4G models. Like with iPad 1, the wifi models deliver first.

    Funny thing is, I'm actually more impatient for my Kindle Fire HD 10" to arrive than for my iPad 4. With iPad, I know exactly what I'm getting, and don't expect a huge diff from my current iPads. With Fire, I'm looking forward to more differences from my Kindle Fire original, and am eager to test it out.

    Ordered my 32GB wifi only iPad 4 at 1:04 am MDT. Should be here on Nov. 2. I was going to also buy a mini for my wife, but she asked, "Why can't I just use your old one?" (an iPad 2 - which I don't have to worry about selling now.)
