Your iPad is on its way

Apple iPad mini with Retina Display ships to launch day customers, first batch of deliveries expected Nov. 15


If you ordered your brand new iPad mini with Retina Display on the morning of launch yesterday, you might want to check your Apple Order Status page. Reports are now coming out of the woodworks confirming that Apple has indeed shipped their first batch of new iPad mini units, with the earliest deliveries set for November 15th – just two days from now, Friday.

Of course, not all ordes will be delivered on Friday – I ordered an iPad mini with Retina Display 32GB Space Gray the minute the Apple Store came back online yesterday morning, and while my iPad has shipped it’s not set to be delivered until next Monday, the 18th. Is it me, or is next weekend going to be a loong weekend?
