    One thing I just realized - the Smart Cover comes in a little white box. Apple has done some interesting things with little white boxes in the past. Like the new Ear Pods - that box is the exact shape and dimensions of an iOS icon. So I started looking at this box, and it hit me - so I measured it, and sure enough, this Smart Cover box is EXACTLY as thick as the iPad mini will be!! So if you want to get a feel for the iPad mini, turn that packing box for your Smart Cover over and put the Smart Cover on top. That's the thinness of the Mini. Can't wait for Friday!

    Additional research - the weight will be about what 2 iPhones together would weigh. *sigh*. I can't stop thinking about how cool this thing is going to be!

    Thank you! That was a great review and I think the reviewer was spot on with his assesments.

    Where is it gonna go? Ontario to LA isn't that far. They can't be delivered until the 2nd, my guess its that's your closest hub until it gets to a truck.

    I'm still "preparing to ship" since Saturday morning. Cover received today. Says mini delivery 11/2. Can't track. UPS delivery guy didn't know what to say. Am I going to get 11/2?

    Did you try FedEx track by reference using your phone number? My cable came today via UPS but my iPad is coming FedEx.

    Generally if it says 11/2 it will be there 11/2. They can't ship them out until then...so chances are its sitting in a warehouse hub somewhere. Mine has been sitting in PA since 10/28.

    Mine still says preparing for shipment on the apple store site but it is actually in Lexington KY at a UPS facility. Go figure that UPS would update their site better than Apple.

    Mine shows Lexington, KY and that it left there this afternoon. It's gotta make a nice long trip across the states, then across the pond to get to my little island in the Pacific. Friday can't come soon enough!

    What reference number you needed for UPS to give the status on your order. I have tried my phone number, my order number and serial number of the iPad 4 that's suppose to ship and no information found.

    Thanks
