There are lots of rumors flying this morning about a potential, hefty price drop in iPad 2 when the iPad 3 comes to market. On the surface, this doesn’t seem like news at all. It makes sense to discount older versions of technology in order to make way for the new, but how low will Apple go? That’s the big question.
It all stems from a report that claims Apple is going to release two versions of iPad 3, one with more bells and whistles than any human being could actually ever need, and a more basic upgrade. The idea is to give them a range of price points from $499 to $399 and then the assumed $299 for the old iPad 2.
