Like other new mobile products Apple (AAPL) has launched in recent years, the company’s iPad mini has been in short supply ever since it was released this past November. The sleek device added a new, lower price point to Apple’s tablet portfolio and some analysts believe it will soon be more popular than Apple’s full-size iPad. While demand remained strong through the holidays, Apple managed to improve iPad mini supply and get shipping times for new orders placed in Apple’s online store ahead of the holidays down to 1 week. Now, shipping quotes are down to 1-3 business days, marking the best turnaround time Apple has seen since launching the new device. BGR reviewed the iPad mini last November and called it Apple’s best tablet yet.
