iPad 3 Cometh as Best Buy Discounts iPad 2 Stock
There's no question that even though MWC 2012 is seeing some great new products being launched like the new ASUS Padfone and the HTC One family of devices, everyone is still wanting more from Apple. You know the only cure for for that disease, is more iPad! Best Buy is doing what it can to get users their iPad 2 fix by marking them down $50 across all models.
One thing everyone should be aware of with sales like this is that they mean a couple of things. First off, Best Buy, among many other retailers, is gearing up for an Apple iPad 3 launch, set to be announced March 7th, which is the current rumor. This means that the iPad 2 will be going on sale regardless of what store it's in. In fact, there have been many reports of Apple leaving the iPad 2 in production for some time after the iPad 3 is released, to use it as a 'lower-end' iPad device for those who don't need to keep up with the Jones' just yet. Speculation states that the iPad 2 will see a $100 price reduction when the iPad 3 is on store shelves. This is the same price reduction sale technique we saw when the iPad 2 was launched, and Apple marked down the original iPad.
The question now is, knowing this information, will you save for an iPad 3 which Best Buy is gearing up for, or will you buy an iPad 2 at a discounted price?
