a poor man's new mini toy.

Well, the ordering (or getting) the iPad mini with Retina Display (aka 2nd generation iPad mini) has proven to be difficult this time. It was available on 12th November (via online order or online reservation). However, Apple did not have enough stock, so Apple did not make a big announce, and on that day, only Wi-Fi only were available immediately.

I need a cellular model. I patiently tried to reserve one (for in store pickup), but didn't have the model I've been looking for, until yesterday. So the poor Antony drove a long way and get the exact model he wanted.

Anyhow, there are the unboxing photos. Starting from the box shot.
iPad mini with Retina Display

Some of you might know that I have an iPad mini bought in December last year. The iPad mini has been a great travel mate... in my manbag (aka handbag). Just the right size and weight. The drawback of iPad mini (1st generation), it's display is not Retina Display.

Instead of getting white (Silver), I decided to go for Space Grey this time. Since my iPhone 5s, iPad Air all in Space Grey. Just to complete Space Grey 2013 family.

Anyhow, more photos.

And the very important specs:

The contents. It looks very similar to iPad mini (1st generation)'s packaging.

Perhaps I should post a photo of my iPad family shot.

Of course I did not drive there just for the iPad mini with Retina Display, I also visited a good friend there.
