    I prefer black white tends to wash out the screen
    What do you mean wash out? I've never heard this complaint before. I've heard that it's distracting to some people but after using a white iPhone for so long, black bezels are a little distracting to me! xD

    Does anybody have an idea of iPad mini's possibility on the release of a retina version within a year? Will it bea big difference from the original display? I don't wanna waste my money if a better one comes out shortly...but I love apple..
    If you are waiting to buy with the fear that something better will come along you will never stop waiting. Yes, there is the possibility of a retina mini, will it be within the next year? No one knows that.

    I thought the same thing when I was going to get the white iPhone...I had heard that especially about the iPad...but I think this one is going to be different with the silver feel

    Uncertain, but plausible.

    Hey iMore staff! Glad to be with you all. I'm the dedicated husband staying up WAY past my bedtime to order a 64GB Sprint iPad mini WiFi + Cellular in White/Silver for my wife. She has a ZTE Optik right now, and to be honest, I don't know a person I'd actually recommend it to. Sure, it's got a great screen and is 3G enabled, but what an ultimate letdown. She tinkered with it for several months (since April, actually), and she's been salivating for the mini since I showed her the first renders.

    Only question is, when does the Braintrust think that the WiFi + Cellular models will ship/arrive? If I had to call it, I'm going with some of the other pundits that Monday, November 12th seems likely, as Sprint is rolling out their new 3G/4G LTE plans on the 11th. Since Apple can't deliver a product on a Sunday, I'd imagine it'd be the next day. Any thoughts?

    What exactly do you mean by "wash out"? I'm not sure that you're using the term correctly.

    Well damn, I'm all of 1hr half late but all good. Just keeping everyone company as I only intend to get an ipad mini maybe for x-mas for daughter assuming they are available. I already have an ipad 3gen and have no intention of getting rid of it. But anyways would love to win one too or an iMac --- that simply looked awesome.

    The best guess is off the "two weeks later" given at the show. Possibly the 16th.


    My curiosity is why sprint? They don't add it to a shared package. Are you in one of the rare sprint LTE areas?

    I have both a white iPhone 5 and iPad 2, and as for washing out I would disagree, especially compared to my black iPhone 4.

    "Washing out" the display means that the display's colors are noticeably inaccurate, with a hazy feel to the image. I've never heard of this happening with white iPads. I've heard of the white bezel being a little distracting but that varies from person to person.

    I don't know if this will hold up in person, but in the images, I feel like the white iPad mini gives the illusion of the screen being larger.

    There's a reason almost all TV sets are black. When you're watching video or playing a game, you want the TV set to blend away into the background so you can enjoy what you're doing without the distractions of a big, bright rim around it.

    The same goes for iPad and iPad mini. Some people find having a white faceplate very distracting when they're watching videos or gaming, and others just don't like the contrast between the white border and the black screen when the device is off. (It's known as "panda" if you want to get all inside baseball about it.)

    Others aren't bothered by a white border at all and really like the two-tone look of the iPhone when its off. This year, however, you also have something else to consider. Until apps update for widescreen, they'll be letter-boxed or pillar-boxed on the iPhone 5, which means black bars. Those will almost disappear on a black iPhone 5. On a white iPhone 5, not so much...
