The fireworks might have been left for later, but this morning Apple started selling the new iPad Mini Retina through their stores and online here in the UK.
There have been big question marks over stock levels, so it will be interesting to see how quickly the delivery dates start getting pushed back. At the moment the online store reports that the 16GB and 32GB WiFi only version of the iPad Mini Retina has an estimated delivery time of 1-3 days. The larger 64GB and 128GB versions, and the version with mobile data included, have an estimated delivery time of 5-10 days.
It is expected that the iPad Mini Retina will be a big seller this Christmas, so it could be a good idea to get your orders in early, just in case supply should run short leading up to Christmas. Are you looking to get one for yourself or someone else perhaps?
In addition to being available through Apple online store and their store network, you can also buy the iPad Mini Retina through amongst other the following UK retailers online:
