With today being the day to pre-order the iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad, it's no surprise that the Apple Store has gone down for maintenance. Let's await the pre-order screens with baited breath!
Orders for the WiFi-only model of the iPad Mini are expected to be in hand on November 2. The cellular-capable ones will reach customers on November 9. The fourth-generation iPad will be released on November 2.
Edit: The store came back up shortly after 3 AM with the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad, along with the new Smart Cover for the iPad mini, available for pre-order. I've got a 16GB WiFi iPad mini winging its way to me. How about the rest of you guys?
