There are more reports today of Apple shipping pre-ordered iPad mini LTE (or WiFi + Cellular) models much earlier than expected. 9to5Mac, MacRumors, and others are getting reports from users who are seeing that their units have shipped and that delivery dates are as early as this Thursday, November 15.
I’m sure that’s making for a lot of happy customers among those seeing these early shipping notices for their pre-orders.
Now what I’d love to see is for the ship times of the iPad mini LTE models to come down too. As of this morning, they are still at two weeks. I am going to be returning my WiFi only model later this week and plan to get an LTE model as soon as I can. I’m hoping they may get to Apple stores at the end of next week.
If you’re one of those lucky pre-order folks, here’s hoping you get your new iPad mini LTE model this week – if you do, be sure to let us know what you think of it in the comments.
