Finally! The iPad mini was delivered by Apple store to me some 30 hours after the official launch on Nov 2. I have been waiting patiently for Apple to produce something lighter than my iPad 2 which I thought to be the best product Apple had ever produced. It is my favorite even after my acquisition of iPhone 5 2 weeks ago.
Now that I have set up my iPad mini I must admit it has now become my most favorite gadget! For now I am more than 100% happy!
