We’ve been waiting, holding our breath for Apple to announce when it would be making the iPad mini with Retina display available to order. That day has finally arrived. Head on over to Apple.com and you can now order the new iPad mini and expect delivery in 1-3 business days. Shipping times slip to 5-10 days if you want the Wi-Fi plus Cellular models. Prices start from $399 in the U.S. (£319 in the UK) for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model and go all the way up to $829 (£659) for the 128GB Wi-Fi plus Cellular.
In terms of specs, it’s identical to the iPad Air in every way except size. It has a 7.9″ Retina display packed with a resolution of 1536 x 2048, giving it a pixel density of 324 ppi. It has the A7 chip, ultra-fast wireless with MIMO and 4G LTE capabilities compatible in more markets than any other tablet.
Let us know if you plan on ordering one.
