Retina iPad Mini may debut on Nov. 21, Target.com suggests - CNET

Apple's hasn't yet revealed a release date for iPad Mini Retina, but a product page at Target.com may have spilled the beans.

First spotted by MacRumors, the retail giant's Web site lists the base 16GB tablet as having a November 21 release date. So far, the most Apple has said about a release date was that the $399 tablet would not be available until "later in November."

While getting the tablet in consumers' hands a week before Thanksgiving will give Apple a jump on Black Friday sales, MacRumors notes that November 21 is a Thursday and that Apple typically launches products on Fridays.

CNET has contacted Apple for comment and will update this report when we learn more.

However, the new tablet is said to be in limited supply. Apple CEO Tim Cook alluded to possible shortages of the recently unveiled tablet during Apple's earnings conference call on Monday.

"It's unclear whether we'll have enough for the quarter or not," Cook said.

The next day, it was reported that Sharp may be responsible for the expected shortage. The Apple supplier is having problems with production yields of the 7.9-inch display for the Mini Retina, according to a Digitimes report.
