iPad mini Launches in US, Canada, UK, Germany, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, and other countries

The iPad mini launch has started! We’re well into November 2nd in the Pacific region with fans in New Zealand, Australia, Singapore, and Hong Kong already getting their hands on the iPad mini and iPad 4th generation.

First pictures came in from New Zealand with one very happy guy and his new iPad mini:

But it it’s not going to be business as usual in the U.S. Northeast where iPad mini shipments might be delayed, Apples iconic 5th Avenue store in New York City isn’t expecting large crowds, and both GigaOm and CNET think the storm chaos in the Eastern US will (literally) dampen first day sales.

We’ll keep updating this post with pictures and video from around the world, wrapping up with yours truly…since I’m on the West Coast of North America and only Alaska and Hawaii will get their hands on iPad minis after I do!

Share you own photos in the comments or email them to tris [at] iphonehacks.com and I’ll post them here.

    It’s would be wise to wait for 3 months until Apple releases the iPad Mini S with a Retina display 6 Watt charger, A5X processor and upgraded yet still sub par 6mp camera. Problem is that just like the iPhone 5, There will be a 50 dollar price bump. Belly up to the trough sheep!

        Really? think about what I said there. I just pointed out exactly what happened with the iPad 4. The only difference is 3 months. So is it me saying it that is pathetic or is it Apple releasing such a minor upgrade in such a short time pathetic?

      As opposed to waiting all year for a new “flagship” phone that doesn’t have 4G LTE!?

      Get lost.

        That’s funny, my S3 does have LTE. So did my S2 HDLTE from a year and a half ago. You telling me you havn’t had it that long?

          I’m talking about the new “Nexus”, Google’s flagship that is coming without 4G LTE support.

          Also, how about Samsung trying to build an iPhone sized phone, only to have to drop HALF the features of the gigantic GS3 in order to fit what they could in that sized phone.

          It just shows they REALLY made the GS3 so big because that’s the only way they could fit all the components into it.

          They CANNOT engineer on Apple’s level and never will!

            As far as the Nexus 4 goes, its nearly perfect. it has 2gb of ram(double the iphone) a 1.7 quadcore (double the cores of the iphone at a higher rate and a 320 ppi display (iphone is 326). you get double the phone with the nexus for $299 oughtright. so for a phone that much more powerful and less than half the price of iphones $650 do you really think that the Apples flagship is truly worth the money? And before you say the sam old ” Apple devices dont need high specs because the hardware and software work so well together” can you tell me why no phone older than the 4sare able to use Siri or 3D maps? Even the Nexus One, Googles very first phone can run fully functional Jelly Bean. Besides Apple showed up to the LTE game 2 years later than any other manufacturer so thats not really a winning point.

            Maybe Apple was “late” to the LTE game, but it was because they wanted to engineer a no-compromise phone that retained an AMAZINGLY thin and light form without cutting corners on features.

            Who else does that? Nobody. They may offer the same features, but they have to have a 5″ screen to hide them behind. Or they CAN build a thin, light handset, they just have to leave out some features. Either way, they compromise.

            Apple does not.

          • bcsc

            With all this marvelous engineering why were they not able to cram an SD slot and NFC chip in there. The S3 mini, Has these things at a quite compatible size to the iPhone. In terms of weight, the iPhone 5 is also heavier than the slightly larger S3 mini while having less inside of it. I don’t quite understand how skipping LTE for 2 years helps make a no Compromise phone. That claim actually states that they compromised NFC functionality in exchange for looks. You’re kinda saying that the left out a major feature so as to not cut corners on features??? Help me out here.

    What is wrong with you, if you hate Apple so much why are you here, I cant comprehend why, is your life so boring that you have to try and bait people and get a reaction from people on a the internet, are you lacking real social interaction.
    does the baiting and bullying, go on in Android forums, or Black Berry forums,

    it confuses me and bewilders me honestly.

    • bcsc

      It’s called trolling, and yes it happens in all forums.
