iPad mini UK pre-order starts tomorrow

If you’re after an iPad mini you’d better get your credit card prepared as the UK pre-order for the tablet starts tomorrow morning.

The iPad mini was unveiled on Tuesday 23 October, and will be available to order from tomorrow, Friday 26 October. The first units will start shipping out on 2 November.

There are a whopping twelve different iPad mini models to choose from. To break it down, there are three storage options, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. There are two connectivity types, either Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi plus Cellular. And, perhaps the hardest to decide, the iPad mini comes in black and white finishes.

Although only born a few days ago, the iPad mini has attracted plenty of criticism from some, who suggest that at £269 for the lowest-end model, it’s just too expensive. It’s conspicuously pricier than the Google Nexus 7, which starts at just £159.

However, build quality matches up to the full-size iPad, with an aluminium rear. Other specs include a dual-core A5 processor, 1,024 x 768 pixel resolution and dual cameras.

Here’s how much each model will cost you –

16GB Wi-Fi – £269
32GB Wi-Fi – £349
64GB Wi-Fi – £429
16GB Wi-Fi plus Cellular – £369
32GB Wi-Fi plus Cellular – £449
64GB Wi-Fi plus Cellular – £529
