Apple, on Tuesday, announced that it had begun selling its newly revamped iPad mini tablet with an enhanced ‘retina’ display, for which it had not previously announced a firm launch date.

Apple unveiled the new gadget on October 22 at the same time as its larger sibling, the iPad Air, but said the mini would be sold at an unspecified date in November.

Apple did not indicate in which countries the iPad mini would be immediately available. — AFP“The response to iPad Air has been incredible, and we're excited for customers to experience the new iPad mini with retina display,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice-President, Marketing.
