In addition to the 4th Generation iPad, all three telcos will sell the Wi-Fi + Cellular version of the iPad mini in the coming weeks. Telstra is currently allowing potential customers to register their interest in the upcoming iPad mini by leaving their details, while Vodafone's iPad mini page simply lists the device as "coming soon". The Optus Web site doesn't yet list the iPad mini at all, though the telco has confirmed it will be available "soon".

Pricing and an official release date for the 4G version of the iPad mini is yet to be revealed by any of the telcos.

The iPad mini officially went on sale in Australia on Friday 2 November, but the Wi-Fi only model of the tablet was sold first.
