As soon as Nov 16? I thought they were already out. I already got a chance to play with a demo unit in my campus tech store. Absolutely loved the design, and if it had retina then I'm sure I would've bought one.

The WiFi-only models are out now.

The Cellular-enabled models aren't yet available.

The iPad mini should also be able to have phone service if it's going to possibly replace car systems.
