    I was expecting it to be a couple of weeks before it’s available but didn’t really want to miss the first batch so wondered about pre-ordering etc.

    I imagine it will be available to pre-order/order after the announcement.

    I’ve seen a rumour that they’ll be available from 2nd November. As ever, we’ll know for sure tonight; keep that store page on auto-refresh….

    well the iphone 5 was available to pre-order 1 week after the launch with delivery a week after that.

    OK cheers, I’ll hover over the keyboard after the announcement and see if they put them up

    I’m sure they will allow pre-order once it’s announced, that’s been their normal mode of operation.

    If I were you I’d wait for the announcement and then make a model/cost comparison between the mini / iPad2 and iPad3. If the mini is well priced it will make sense, Apple have a juggling act as it’s in direct competition with lower priced devices but demand will be very strong.

    The conversation regarding waiting, comparing and evaluating has been had and done to death, 16 yr olds simply don’t see it like I do πŸ˜€

    I’ll be ordering a Mini

    Right, my youngest has decided he wants an iPad mini [if it does actually exist] for his birthday, sight unseen …. I know, I know

    so tell me, apart from camping out at an Apple store like an excited teenage girl waiting for a Justin Bieber show, do they generally make stuff available for online orders/pre-orders straight away after announcing it?

    I assume that Apple have re-defined the “inch”? Apparently, seven of the standard inches are too small for an iPad.

    aren’t they 4″ or something?

    he doesn’t want the the maxi-pad πŸ˜€ as it’s too big and he already has an iphone

    trying to second guess the pricing on these, Β£269?
    A fraction more than the ipod touch 32gb.

    I’m sure Apple isn’t the first to redefine the length of 7 ‘inches’. πŸ˜†

    I bet they have and won’t therefore go for ‘mini’

    i cant see em calling it a minipad either but if an STWer can come up with it im sure a comedian with a larger fan base can put it out there as well.

    better than the ipod touch aimed at children then, the “i-touch kids”

    No.

    I assume that Apple have re-defined the “inch”? Apparently, seven of the standard inches are too small for an iPad.

    And as Apple have never admitted to the existence of a smaller iPad, any sizes quoted have been purely media speculation. As many smaller pads have a 7″ screen, analysts and bloggers have been saying the ‘iPad Mini’ will be 7″, while others who are a bit more savvy have said it’ll be 7.85″, which makes more sense, as that’s close to the size of a paperback book page.
    This smaller Pad makes more sense for youngsters, and it’ll be a great thing to use with OS maps, using Viewranger or UK Map. I can see it being incorporated into car entertainment and navigation systems too, a dash mount with CoPilot or TomTom installed would be really nifty.
