Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) just confirmed to their buyers that the iPad Mini LTE will arrive early next week. This report comes from Apple Insider. This report cites some emails that were forwarded to them by buyers. The email reportedly tells customers that they'll give buyers their tracking number once the device is shipped.
The Cupertino-based company introduced the iPad Mini in September and earlier this month, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) finally released the iPad Mini Wi-Fi version. They planned to release the LTE version two weeks later and it's still on schedule, even though there are still reports that it might not arrive until after Thanksgiving. Some people have reported receiving emails that the iPad Mini LTE would ship on November 21.
The iPad Mini with LTE starts at $459 for the 16GB model. These tablets will work with AT&T or Verizon services, unfortunately that doesn't include roaming outside the United States.
Once the iPad Mini with LTE becomes available, I think sales will pick up further. I will admit that it's a little strange that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is releasing the iPad Mini tablet a little late in the year, right before the holiday shopping season kicks off, fortunately, I doubt it will have much impact on the sales. Apple won't have a hard time selling their devices but they should double check their supply and demand beforehand. The last thing they need is a repeat of the pre-order gaffe they just had when there wasn't enough tablets for all the pre-orders they were receiving.
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has many reasons to look forward to the upcoming holiday season sale. They have the iPad Mini, iPhone 5, iPad 4, and the 13 inch MacBook Pro. I predict Apple will make some huge sales later on this month and throughout the early part of next year.
