Finally, the smaller version of the Apple’s revolutionary tablet, iPad mini is now available in-stores to purchase for the masses all over the globe. Along with the iPad mini, Apple has launched the new iPad with Retina Display aka iPad 4 today. Obviously, you can just go to a nearby store and stand in line to get your unit. Users who already pre-ordered, should receive them at their doorsteps today. According to some reports, the launch of the iPad mini and refreshed iPad 4 fails to attract huge line before Apple stores.
Both the iPad mini and iPad 4 tablets are now available in Wi-Fi editions. So, it could be one of the reasons for less buzz around the launch. People might be waiting for the launch Wi-Fi+cellular editions of both tablets. The LTE version of both new iPad tablets looks on track for Mid-November release. Earlier today, Apple seeded iOS 6.0.1 and iOS 6.1 beta builds for users.
The base price of the iPad mini Wi-Fi edition is $329. Here is the full list of both iPad mini and iPad 4:
# iPad Mini 16GB Wi-Fi only – $329
# iPad Mini 32GB Wi-Fi only – $429
# iPad Mini 64GB Wi-Fi only – $529
# iPad 4 16GB Wi-Fi only – $499
