iPad Mini Shipping Estimates Drop to One Week in U.S. and Canada

Thursday December 6, 2012 8:54 AM PST by Eric Slivka
Shipping estimates for the iPad mini have fallen to one week in Apple's online stores for the United States and Canada, indicating that Apple is beginning to approach a supply-demand balance for the device that launched just over a month ago. Estimates in the company's online stores for other countries remain at two weeks, but those will likely move to the new one-week estimate fairly soon.

Apple is beginning to catch up with demand on the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, as evidenced by shortening shipping estimates, although estimates on the new iMac are rapidly slipping following its introduction last week. Apple and supply chain sources have indicated that stocks of the iMac and iPad mini will remain constrained into 2013.

I think demand for the mini would be greater if it had a retina display. Maybe we'll get a retina mini sooner than October 2013, maybe the first half of 2013.

That's not what Anandtech is saying and they know a lot in hardware.
