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.

HOPEFULLY, with the update to iOS 6.0.1, the disappearing emails on my iPad 3 will no longer disappear!
