Unboxing Photos from Early iPad Mini Delivery Surface in France

Yesterday, we noted that early iPad mini pre-orders were en route to customers and that resellers were receiving shipments ahead of Friday's official launch for the Wi-Fi models.

French site igen.fr now shares some unboxing photos [Google translation] from a customer who pre-ordered a white iPad mini from French reseller Darty and has already received his shipment.


The unboxing photos do not reveal any significant surprises, with Apple opting to maintain its usual box layout for the new device in placing the iPad mini on top of a support surface containing the documentation and accessories. The iPad mini comes with a Lightning to USB cable and a power adapter, although the adapter is not visible in these photos.


Wi-Fi models of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad will officially debut this Friday, November 2 in 34 countries, with Apple's own retail stores opening at 8:00 AM to begin sales. Cellular-capable models will follow several weeks later.

Apple's 7.9 Inches has far fewer pixels than competing 7-inch tablets! You're cramming a worse screen in there, charging more, and accusing others of compromise? Ballsy.

And they will sell 10-20 times more than those competing 7 inch tablets!

You crammed that in there sarcastically just to get it in before the inevitable whining continues right?

We get it, you don't like it. Don't buy it, stop the whining.

Damn. That iPad box looks HUGE, compared to the iPad mini's box.

I'm hoping the iPad 5 will be thin enough to get a box that slim.
