Best Buy drops price of iPad 2

Best Buy drops price of iPad 2
With the rumored iPad 3 launch date closing in quickly, Best Buy is dropping iPad 2 prices $50 across the board.  While this is far from an official confirmation of the iPad 3, it is just the latest in a string of events that point towards the iPad 2 soon being shown the door.  Just two weeks ago Meijer, a grocery-store/retail hybrid chain across the Midwest, cut the 16GB Wi-Fi price by $70.  We'll wait for official confirmation from Apple, but if you're in the market for an iPad and haven't pulled the trigger yet it may be worth the wait to hold out a few more weeks.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 also dropped down to $399 at Best Buy. Either in response to the iPad 2 or possibly because they are going to start preparing for their new Tablets as well.

Saving $50 to me in a big deal.. If it was 5 or 10 then that could slide, but $50 is a good amount. I would cancel and order from BB.
