Despite of the fact that there were initial reports about shorter lines (or none) at one point at isolated locations that sell the iPad mini — which is available since yesterday morning — according to new information Apple ran out of iPad mini initial stock at various store around the world.
Reports are coming in of the iPad mini selling out in less than three hours at the Fifth Avenue New York City store, as well as other locations throughout the US, with varying sell-out times. United Kingdom, Singapore, Canada and other locations are also reported to have no more iPad mini stock.
It is yet unknown just how many iPad mini slates Apple managed to sell in the first day of availability — and we’re still looking forward to receiving official wording regarding first week-end pre-order figures — but we can definitely draw one of the following conclusions: 1. demand and response have been very good or, 2. initial stock was so low that even with limited demand it managed to sell out. We’ll let you know more as soon as we find out. Until then, check out the source link for a collection of tweets around the world concerning the iPad mini, stocks and selling out.
