The iPad mini has only started selling today but it’s already on backorder with the next shipments due for no sooner than 2 weeks across the world. The only exception is the US where the black version will still be delivered on the promised November 2nd.
It’s either that the white version is immensely more popular in the US or there were fewer white units available. Having a look across European Apple stores however, shows us that both the white and black versions are back-ordered already in the UK, Germany, France, Spain and Italy.
The situation with the 4th generation of the 10-inch iPad is identical in Europe, with only the US iPad still holding strong for a delivery on November 2nd. It’s clear which of the two iPads is the hotter product, at least on the US market.
