Best Buy has just reduced the price of the iPad WiFi + 3G by $30. That’s for all storage capacities: 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB. The 16 GB 3G model is now $599, the 32 GB is $699, and the 64 GB is $799. Maybe this is a to clear some inventory for the new iPad 2? It’s interesting that the WiFi-only models are not discounted, and the iPad 3G is not discounted at Apple’s online store. Get them here:
Best Buy recently showed three new iPad SKUs on their website, but it is unclear as to what they may be placeholders for. We’ve heard through the grapevine that Best Buy will soon be selling the Verizon iPad + MiFi bundle, but this may change with the impending launch of an iPad 2 with built-in CDMA functionality.
The iPad 2 is set to adopt two cameras that both shoot pictures and video. The front camera will be 0.3 megapixels with the back being an 720P HD video recording capable one megapixel sensor. The iPad 2 has been rumored to adopt a Retina Display, but evidence we found in the SDK, and a report from an analyst state that the iPad 2’s display will keep the current version’s 1024 x 768 resolution.
