iPad mini Pre-order Availability Now 2 Weeks for 16GB Black Wi-Fi Models

Looks like Apple Canada has sold out of its initial pre-orders for 16GB Wi-Fi models in black. The online order page now shows 2 weeks for the availability of the latter, whereas 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi units still show a delivery date of “11/2 – 11/6”, which would mean an arrival on November 2nd depending on your delivery zone.

Check out the image below that notes the 2 week availability window:

For reference, the US Apple Store still shows availability for all black models.

Yesterday’s initial iPad mini pre-orders for white iPad mini models started off with 2 week availability and numerous orders note a delivery date of November 21st. With the 16GB Wi-Fi model selling out of its initial pre-order, it’s a positive sign customers are placing orders for the new 7.9 inch tablet. It’ll be interesting to see how long it will take 32GB and 64GB Wi-Fi models to sell out of their initial pre-order stock.

As for Wi-Fi + Cellular models, Apple does not specify an estimated delivery date for Canada other than “late November”, meanwhile our US counterparts have seen a November 23rd date. The new iPad mini will ship with a 5W USB power adapter, the same one used for the iPhone 5.

Did you pre-order the iPad mini?

Thanks Michael!
