Rumor has it that Apple will be shipping the new iPad 4 LTE tablets on Friday, November 16. This date is within the range that was provided by Apple during the launch announcement, and even a bit earlier than some had speculated. The iPad 4 LTE was supposed to ship within two weeks of November 2, though this seemed like it would be a miss when some reported arrival times as November 23.

These dates soon disappeared and were replaced by "mid-November," a highly uninformative answer. However, rumors say that on Friday, Apple told customers that LTE iPad 4s and LTE iPad minis would ship within five days. This is in line with a Friday arrival, as the rumor states.

Supply constraints are expected to limit iPad mini sales, though Apple said that 3 million iPads were sold in the first weekend. That number is a bit misleading as it does not specify how many were the iPad 4 and how many were the new iPad mini. Still, 3 million is nothing to scoff at, though investors continue to punish Apple for reasons that aren't exactly clear.
