Apple announced the iPad mini with Retina display just a couple of days ago. That could prove the ultimate tease for some of us considering that Apple may not have enough iPad minis to come even close to satisfying consumer demand. As Rhoda Alexander, director of Tablet and Monitor Research at IHS iSuppli, has suggested, the supply for this product is ridiculously tight. That means there will be long wait times if you don’t get one fast.
Apple is not allowing folks to pre-order their iPads online this year. That means you will either have to wait till November 1st to order yours online or get to an Apple store. The good news is the iPad Air is a pretty decent device, so people can get that until Apple has more iPad mini units to ship.
