Silently announced alongside the new iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display, Apple has begun selling a Space Gray version of the first-generation, non-Retina display iPad mini at its physical retail stores.

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…

The updated model has been available via Apple’s online store since Tuesday. The first-generation iPad mini is available in a 16GB capacity for $299, which is a discount from the product’s formerly $329 price point, and comes in both WiFi-only and WiFi+LTE variants.

The Space Gray model replaces the Black and Slate version, and Apple likely made the move on the entry-level iPad mini to retain consistency between the newer iPads and recently launched iPhone 5s.

The $299 iPad mini also sells in a white and silver configuration. A T-Mobile model of the first-generation iPad mini will begin shipping by October 31st, according to Apple’s Online Store.
