Announced as the replacement for the black and slate iPad mini at Tuesday's event in San Francisco, the new Space Gray version is reportedly now going on sale in some Apple Retail Stores. The new color went on sale immediately after the event online, but has now a few days later reportedly started hitting physical shelves. From 9to5Mac:

Sources say that the model is now available via several Apple Stores, but not every store. Interested customers should call their store to ensure availability…

So, if you want one, it's worth a quick call first. Online sales are great, but some folks much prefer to see the color for themselves before dropping the cash. The original iPad mini has been reduced down to $299 and will be sold alongside the shiny new iPad mini with Retina Display. With the price cut and new color, anyone running out to grab one of these?
