    What do you mean? The iPad 2 is selling for the same price as the iPad 1 did last year and if you happen to live overseas it may even cost less. In the UK prices are 20-30£ lower then they were for the iPad 1. And if you really wanted an iPad 1, you can order it online or over eBay & craigslist.

    They are not taking them off the shelves , they are just not putting Ipad 1s back on because they are selling out .
    Ipad 2 is the same price as Ipad 1 was before clearance priced, just does more

    If you hurry, Verizon is cleaning out inventory and 16 GB Wi-Fi models are selling for $299. Wait til next week they will be gone, if not already.

    As for price, this is priced so low the competition has their back up against the wall, even trying to copy, let alone improve.

    Apple doesn't hate you. Nor are they treating you badly. Apple has replaced last year's build with a higher performance new model that is EZr to hold ... priced the same as last years model. The lines are long all over the world. The demand is so unbelievable high.

    Used ones might be available, depends on how good you are at bargaining.

    If you can't find on in the stores around you, check Apple's online store. They should have some at the clearance price and even some refurbished ones cheaper than that(atleast they do in the U.S. store).

    Was this at an Apple store or an independent retailer? If it was at an independent retailer, your gripe should be with them, not with Apple.

    You're right, Argos was selling 32GB iPad 1's for £300 if I remember correctly last week, the reason I know is I bought one full price the week before, (before finding out about the imminent release of the new one.) now they aren't listing the old ones at all, just the iPad 2 at £30 cheaper than the ipad 1.

    I guess you didn't get in quick enough, you should be able to pick an old one up at a low price on the net though, there should still be old stock hanging around.

    Apple applied price protection to retailers it is standard procedure not unusual to take stock back regardless if it is a ipad or a toaster. I suspect that's what happened usually retailers will not keep old products very long as it is not in there best interest

    Explanation Not necessary accurate dollars ok

    Old product ipad $499
    New product ipad2 $499
    Old product price protected $ 399 but only for so many days. Until new product is available

    New product ie ipad 2 ships

    Old product removed from shelves returned to apple for credit
    This above will not apply to all countries but is an example.
    Most retailers clear stock when new products released as it costs them money if not.
    So I suspect the above was applied hence you cannot buy the ipad one any more from that retailer. Why do I know this because I work for the good guys in Australia and that is exactly what happened here

    What problem are you having posting with your iPad. I assume you're currently posting using your PC. You just need to go to ipadforums.net using Safari on your iPad and then find the topic area of interest - say, DiY or something similar, press on that button and, when the page loads you'll see the option to Start a New Thread. Press that and you can enter the title of the thread, type the text into the Message pane and post it.

    Perhaps you have some specific issue with the iPad and posting. If so, can you describe what the issue is?

    Yes - thanks - I should have mentioned that there's a free iPad Forum app in the Apple App Store.

    We're all crazy iPad guys and gals here - where else would you find hundreds - possibly thousands - of people nearly fighting to hand their hard earned money over to Apple for their latest iPad?

    I went to my local Apple Store - but the lines were too long, so I had a coffee instead....

    Hope you enjoy your iPad - keep in touch and post your thoughs, experiences and questions

    Same as how you post on any other computer. I've been posting on this site (and accessing admin panels) with safari since I got my ipad.
