iPad mini Shipping Down to 1 Week in the US

European customers still have to wait two weeks for delivery

The iPad mini now ships in 1 week or less in the United States where Apple has updated the delivery estimates for buyers of its diminutive tablet computer.

A quick visit to the Apple online store will reveal that Cupertino is not only getting a handle of iPhone 5 supplies, but also those of the iPad mini.

Previously estimated to ship in 2-3 weeks, the smaller iPad is now available for delivery in just one week. Even less, if you’re lucky.

Prices for the US start at $329 for the 16GB configuration and go all the way up to $529 for the model with 64GB of flash storage. European customers will pay the same figures in their own currency, though shipping is still stuck at 2 weeks in numerous EU territories.
