The white iPad mini

The white model of Apple’s new iPad mini tablet computer has already sold out during its first day of pre-orders today, and the shipping date has been pushed back.

The black model is still available, but also looks to be going fast.

Apple’s Ireland and UK site indicates that shipping times for the white iPad mini have been pushed back from the expected launch date of 2 November. The white Wi-Fi only models will be dispatched in two weeks, and the white Wi-Fi + Cellular models will ship in late November. 

The situation is the same on Apple’s US site, except the white Wi-Fi + Cellular models are now expected to ship in mid-November.
