The LTE-capable version of Apple's iPad mini hit store shelves on Friday, two weeks after the WiFi-only model was released. The WiFi plus LTE model is available through Apple's own retail stores as well as AT&T, Verizon and Sprint stores.

The iPad mini includes a 7.9-inch multitouch display instead of the 9.7-inch display from the full-size iPad. It also sports front and rear-facing digital cameras, built-in 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, stereo speakers, and Apple's new Lightning connector.
Apple sold 3 million iPads during the first weekend the iPad mini and fourth generation iPad were available. CEO Tim Cook called the numbers a "launch weekend record," and the company will presumably sell even more of its smaller multimedia tablet now that consumers can choose between the WiFi-only and WiFi plus LTE models.
