Best Buy Knocks $50 Off iPad 2 Tablets, Hints at iPad 3 Launch

Time is running out if you plan to sell your iPad 2 device on Craigslist or eBay and maximize your return in anticipation of Apple's iPad 3 launch. The general consensus is that Apple will announce the iPad 3 in March and possibly start selling the device in April, but if you're looking to unload your iPad 2 for the most money possible, you don't have as long to wait.

Best Buy, for example, just slashed the price of the iPad 2 by $50. Pricing now breaks down as follows:
  • iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (16GB): $450
  • iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (32GB): $550
  • iPad 2 with Wi-Fi (64GB): $650
  • iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G (16GB): $580
  • iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G (32GB): $$680
  • iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G (64GB): $780

iPad devices don't typically sell for less than MSRP from the likes of Best Buy unless it's a refurbished device (these aren't) or something new is right around the corner, which is the case here. If you're looking to score a deal on an iPad 2, however, it might be worth waiting until the iPad 3 launches, as more price cuts could be in the cards.

Well... It does indicate that Best Buy has some information on an upcoming iPad 3 launch. However, I have heard too many of these rumors to take it seriously, I'll be surprised when they announce it; not when hints about it's upcoming release are tossed around.
