Apple opens iPad mini reservations for next-day in-store pickup


Author: GSMArc Team , Date : 05-November-2012

The Apple's initial batch of iPad minis sold out online as well as brick-and-mortar Apple Stores. But the company itself initiated online reservations for the new tablet that allows interested customers to purchase a unit online for next-day in-store pickup.

Instead of having to wait the two-week delivery time Apple is currently quoting, those interested in buying the 7.9-inch through online itself. Apple is now allowing a limited number of reservations to be placed after 10pm each evening, to check availability. The service is perhaps the best way to guarantee a unit as Apple Stores around the country are taking delivery of only a limited number of units each day as they trickle in from Chinese manufacturing plants.

To get the system, customers need to go through the steps of placing an online order, but choose the "Pick up" option at checkout instead of "Ship."Apple's pre-order system it employed in China, most recently for the iPad 3, where customers were able to reserve a unit within an allotted time period and subsequently given a specific time to pick up their device the next day. The tablet officially hit stores on Friday in 34 countries as part of Apple's largest product rollout ever.  The tablet available in black or white colors, the Wi-Fi only version of the tablet starts at $329 for 16GB, $429 for 32GB and $529 for 64GB. The Wi-Fi and Cellular version of the Apple iPad will ship in mid November priced at $459, $559 and $659 for 16GB, 32GB and 64GB respectively.
