Apple iPad Mini 'Sold Out In UK On Pre-Orders Alone'
Huge demand sees all base models sold before they have even arrived...
If you were hoping to get an iPad Mini as soon as they hit the shops then you'd better have placed your order already.
Apple is reported to have already sold all the initial stocks of the base model of the new device on pre-orders alone, with new orders apparently coming two weeks after the on-sale date of 2 November.
The computer giant announced the spec of its new mini-tablet on Tuesday this week - and a price of £269 for the base 16GB WiFi-only model.
The 32GB model will cost £349 and the 64GB model £429, with both still available for next Friday at the time of writing.
In other Apple news, many of the company's customers are apparently unhappy that it has chosen to launch the iPad 4 so soon after the previous revamp of the market-leading tablet computer.
A report by Toluna QuickSurveys showed that 54 per cent of iPad 3 owners were "disgruntled" about the perceived short life-span of their devices.
The third gen iPad was only unveiled in March this year.
