Pre-orders for Apple’s new 7.9-inch iPad Mini in Australia start from this Friday (October 26), but when you get the device and how much you pay depends on what you order. Here’s what you need to know.

The iPad Mini, which sports a 7.9-inch screen — smaller than the iPad but bigger than other tablets designed to hold in a single hand — comes in three models: 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Both are available in pure Wi-Fi models or with a built-in SIM slot (which lets you access mobile networks, including the 4G LTE networks used in Australia).
Here’s what we’ll pay and what the US will pay.
Given that the Australian price includes GST, there’s no major difference between Australian and US pricing in any case. Hooray!
The Wi-Fi models will ship from November 2 (and will go on sale in Apple stores at 8am that day). Apple hasn’t given an exact date for shipping the Wi-Fi+3G+4G models beyond saying it will be “a couple of weeks later”.
