Best Buy has dropped the price of the iPad 2 by $50 across the board. We all know that the iPad 3 is coming soon. We expect Apple to send out the invites very soon. Perhaps this week, as the event is rumored to be taking place March 7.
The iPad 3 is expected to hit stores in March, but no one knows exactly when. We can probably expect it to be roughly a week after the March 7 announcement (supposing that is the day it’s announced).
This move is likely to help clear out inventory pre-iPad 3, and make a bit before they have to mark it down significantly to get out of the store.
Meanwhile, the iPad 3 is rumored to have a Retina Display, a faster A5X processor and an improved camera. That’s obviously all rumor for now, but the Retina Display seems likely.
