The plan was for the iPad Mini Retina to be available for purchase at the end of this month, however if you head to the Apple Store now you will see it is readily available to buy.
Furthermore, there was no press coverage or big announcement; it has literally just popped up today.
The iPad Mini Retina, or iPad Mini 2 as many people are labelling it comes in two color choices: Space Grey and Silver. The starting price for one of these is $399 which will get you the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, however if you want to add Cellular then you are looking at a basic price of $529.
Most people will go for either the 16GB with Cellular or 16GB with just Wi-Fi, but if you are looking into bigger memory specs, then be expected to pay anything up to $829 for the 128GB model that sports both Wi-Fi and Cellular.
