Apple drops prices on the iPad 2 - 16GB WiFi model - now only $399, 3G Model Now $529

iPad 2 Hero

As expected, with the announcement of the new iPad Apple has gone ahead and dropped the prices for the iPad 2. If you head on over to the Apple store right now, you will find the iPad 2 16GB with WiFi available for only $399 while the 16GB WiFi + 3G is now starting at only $529.

The New iPad has quite a few new features built into it, including the new retina display, updated camera, 4G LTE and more -  but the iPad 2 is still a serious contender in the tablet market. If you're not looking to spend $499  for a New iPad, an iPad 2 at $399 looks very tempting.

Any ideas on the 32G iPad2? Any stores dropped those prices yet?

"The New iPad" isn't giving me the warm fuzzies. I don't need a Retina display. The iPad 2 covers my tablet needs, but I have to wonder if the Playbook with the QNX 2.0 software upgrade isn't an even better option.

I have an iPad 2 and a Playbook. I gotta say, since the PB2.0 hit, it is a contender for functionality and at work is getting more and more use by me. Now I know someone is going to jump on me for saying that, but let me just say: I am not talking about number or variety of apps when comparing the two. "Functionality," as in stuff for working and a little fun mixed in is the key word. Plus, with the invisible Android app player and the ability to easily side-load many Android apps, it is not a bad choice. Some retailers still have it from $199 to $249.

What if I already have an iPad 2 on the way? Will they give me the $100 back like last year? Can I just send it back and get the "new" iPad?

sting7k says:

You can return it and get the new one.

Juan says:

As a reader of this site (should be tech savvy), I'm surprised you were naive enough to order an iPad 2 only days before the obviously pending announcements on both a sequel and potential price drop??

Carioca32 says:

Is it really going to be "new Ipad"? That breaks all theories about Apple nomenclature and it is very confusing. So now we have the iPad, the iPad 2, and the new iPad. What happens next year? Newer iPad?

Shawnanadd says:

What is the name of the new iPad?

sting7k says:

Should be $299; $100 isn't that big a price swing to spring for the retina display.

General tech says:

The only thing that I care to see is how much faster the processor is compared to iPad 2 and battery life with all these bells and whistles on it. 1080 p is cool but I'm not sure I need on a iPad I think I'd have to see it in person before I can get excited for it. I never bother trying to convert video to use on a iPad because My playbook can download movie files directly to its drive with out the pain in the arse that apple puts you through. All in all I'm still Lookin forward for what iPhone 5 will bring in the coming months, it's starting too feel while apple still makes great products, they just may have ran out of things to surprise us with.

PilotPhil81 says:

Is this only temporary? Or will they be keeping the iPad 2 around for a wile as the cheep model?
