Engadget reports today that it has seen a leaked memo indicating that Best Buy is holding some sort of special iPad 2 event this Sunday April 17. Rumours and news stories have been going around a lot recently about Best Buy stockpiling iPad 2s, and now Engadget thinks it might have found out the reason why Best Buy has been keeping its iPad 2 stock under lock and key. According to a document that Engadget has managed to obtain, Best Buy stores will all have at least three iPad 2s each in stock this Sunday, as part of the event. However, it’s still best to call your local Best Buy to check first before making a wasted trip, as according to the leaked memo, “Existing reserve order fulfilment is still the priority for any iPad 2 inventory that stores receive.”
9to5 Mac also covers the story, and thinks that Best Buy might possibly be offering some sort of iPad 2 combo deal to customers, such as a bundle including an iPod touch as well as the iPad 2, for example, otherwise why call it an “event” when all they’re doing is selling iPad 2s (although granted, if you manage to get your hands on an iPad 2 on Sunday at Best Buy, it will certainly be an “event” for you!)?
