Apple had problems launching the iPad mini 2, but after the tablet went on sale on November 12 you might have thought that the problems have been resolved. Maybe they haven't, at least not fully.

The Cellular version of the Apple iPad mini 2 is on backorder on all the major US carriers. Verizon's shipping date slipped from November 25 to December 2, Sprint is saying the tablet will ship in up to 2 weeks, AT&T will take 3-4 weeks to ship, while T-Mobile might not manage before Christmas with 6-8 week shipping delay.

Surprisingly, Apple's web site still lists the original 5-10 business days for shipping it did when the iPad mini 2 launched. Availability for store pickup is very limited at the moment.

Things over in Europe are a mixed bag T-Mobile Germany will ship the iPad mini 2 with Cellular in 2-3 weeks, while Three UK says it has it in stock and will ship it instantly.

The thing that bugs me about Apple is they are always trying to suck the last dollar out of your pocket. No micro SD slots, so they can charge you a 100 dollars for each 16B of extra storage.

Nobody buys Apple anymore. There's nothing new.
