For some reason, Best Buy is only listing Black iPads and 3G iPads on AT&T on their site currently. Hopefully this isn’t indicative of their opening day sales lineup and a symptom of not having got around to creating new part numbers yet.
At the same time, they are matching Apple’s iPad 1 price reductions:
- Apple iPad 16GB WiFi for $399
- Apple iPad 32GB WiFi for $499
- Apple iPad 64GB WiFi for $599
- Apple iPad 16GB 3G for $529
- Apple iPad 32GB 3G for $629
- Apple iPad 64GB 3G for $729
The all-new thinner and lighter design makes iPad 2 even more comfortable to hold. It’s even more powerful with the dual-core A5 chip, yet has the same 10 hours of battery life. With two cameras, you can make FaceTime video calls, record HD video and put a twist on your snapshots in Photo Booth. And the iPad Smart Cover attaches magnetically and wakes up, stands up and brightens up your iPad 2.
