Apple is ready to put even more heat on it's tablet competition including the Amazon Kindle by lowering the price of the Apple iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi model to $399 and the Apple iPad 2 32GB Wi-Fi/3G to $529. Although the technology in the iPad2 is a year old, $399 is an amazing price for all the power it still packs.

Looks like it might be time for the competition to call it a day. Even at the old price no-one else could get more than a foot in the door. Now? I'm glad I'm not trying to make a living selling non-Apple tablets. Payday could look very thin.

I just bought my son an iPod touch for his birthday. If I'd known he could have had an iPad.

Is it too late to return it and replace with an iPad?

He's only 9. The iPod is probably a bit more resilient for a kid of his age, but still...$400 represents amazing value for money.

it seems like you cant get an iapd 2 32 gig just the 16 gig verison which is a mistake.
a 32 gig ipad 2 for 499 would be a killer deal

Great. We got our iPad2 shortly after the new year. Back then I heard about an new iPad soon to come, but I figured it would cost much more with all the new stuff. And since Apple never striked me as a company who would go down with prices, I thought I can't afford that new iPad and got the iPad2. Now I read this and getting really sad. :(
