The “expert” gadget bloggers who decried the iPad Mini might not like the new tablet but it’s pretty clear that the public disagrees.
It has only been up for pre-order for three days and Apple’s latest gadget is already out of stock.
Apple is now showing a two week delay for both the black and the white WiFi models. The models with LTE cellular won’t be available until mid-November, of course.
As impressive as this might be, the iPad Mini actually didn’t sell out nearly as fast as some of Apple’s other products. The latest iPhone sold out within hours, and the iPad 3, which was launched in March of this year, sold out in under 48 hours. This suggests that demand for the iPad Mini might not be as high as Apple would have liked.
