New iPad stays at $499, iPad 2 drops to $399


Are you on a budget? Well, good news. You can now pick up last year’s iPad — the iPad 2 — for only $399 USD. The sad part is that last year’s iPad is still a better deal than brand new Android tablets today.

Even better, the new iPad remains at the same price point previous iPads have been. It will cost you $499 for the base Wi-Fi-only model with 16 GB of space, $599 for 32 GB, and $699 for 64 GB. If you want the 4G LTE models, that will be $629 for 16 GB, $729 for 32 GB, and $829 for 64 GB. Considering how much better the new iPad is, it is amazing how they were able to keep the price the same.NewImage
