After you enter your Apple ID, but before you get to the activation screen, you'll need to approve Apple's terms and conditions. You can either read through them on the device, or have them e-mailed to you to read at a later time.
Once you've agreed to the Ts and Cs, you'll have to wait a few seconds -- up to a few minutes -- for Apple to activate your sparkly new iPad Mini. It shouldn't take too long, depending on your Internet connection.
