    You'll cave :D

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    My 3G choice is easy - my 3 is wifi and I regretted it. Tethering is a ball ache and, if you're willing to swallow the initial outlay (and delay!!), data sims are peanuts.

    My 3G choice should also be easy. my ipad 1 was wifi and i regretted it, so all my ipads since then have been 3G.

    Also realised, ipad 4 will be the first ipad i have not owned and resold.

    Sounds like you have an iPad for every occasion!

    "For when I'm feeling sad."
    "For when it's raining."
    "For when there's a rainbow in the sky."

    Etc.

    @mrpon

    Unbelievably I got £320 cash for it. After the keynote too!!

    Chuffed. Considering I paid £360 for it after my wife's discount.

    How much useable space do you get with a 16gb typically? 13 or 14? Be like going back in time shrinking 1gb mkv's down to 16gb friendly sizes, but hey, I'll set a massive batch going one time and that'll be the end of it.
    It's 13.8, just checked on the iPad 2.

    Spent a bit of time playing with the iPad 2, it's still pretty whizzy and real racing 2, modern combat and carmageddon run great and look fine.

    FIFA 13 does seem a tad slow though...

    Late November, but I'm getting a 3G.

    Was tempted by the white for the first time ever due to possible scratching of the black, and it looks nice on the back. I just don't like white bezels though so couldn't do it.

    i got "Delivers 2/11 in most areas" for the 16GB Wifi Black, and ships "Late November" for my 16GB 4G White.

    Now to hope it sells out in the next few days :-S

    I also normally go for black, but the scratching issue has put me off, especially if i want to resell mine later on

    Only just placed an order for my Brother as a joint Christmas and Birthday present as they are only a shy under four weeks apart ...

    ... I did it on my iPad through the website; had no problems at all!

    The expected delivery date for the black & slate iPad mini (16GB) is, 'delivers 2/11 in most areas'.

    Got mine showing up as Dispatched: 2 weeks Delivers 16th Nov, 2012.

    Any ideas why that would be? Ordered a product red Smart Cover, possibly the issue?

    You'd be surprised at how often adding an accessory pushes the delivery date back ... maybe you could have chosen to purchase the cover thingummy separately in a high street store instead?

    did you order a white one?

    there are shortages of those, all of those have 2 week delays in the UK.

    I am surprised the white & silver one is more popular than the black & slate seeing as the latter is a far more attractive colour ... quite professional looking if I may say so!

    I did. Seems I missed that on the order page, it's been a long morning!

    Thanks for your help, 16gb black ones seem to be pushed 2 weeks back now for new orders too. Damn.

    The white models (Wifi) were all on 2 weeks delivery from 8:00am - likely the result of a manufacturing or shipping delay.

    (16GB black ordered here ^_^)

    Anybody who says "people just buy the iPad, it's what they know" should have been with me yesterday. Watched 3 people walk out of Currys with Kindle Fire HDs, and a crowd gathering to paw at the demo unit.

    I used the distraction to play with the Transformer Pad. That is niiiiiiiice.

    Went into my local Apple store, and they redirected me to the website! Apparently they knew next to nothing about the mini at all. Disappointing. However, they will be stocking them on the 2nd.
