iPad 3 price same as the iPad 2?

iPad 3 price same as the iPad 2?In its two-year existence, the iPad’s price has remained largely unchanged, but – despite an abundance of iPad 3 rumours – no one’s quite sure what the iPad 3’s price might be.

Well, good news if you fancy grabbing yourself an iPad 3 later this month, as an anonymous tipster tells 9to5mac that the iPad 3 will grab the price baton from the iPad 2. Sah-weet.

If the tipster is on the money, you’ll be able to choose from the following:

  • iPad 3 16GB - £399
  • iPad 3 32GB - £479
  • iPad 3 64GB - £559

If you fancy a 3G iPad 3, throw in an extra £100.

We’ve got the salt shaker to hand, but we’d be quite surprised if Apple did raise the price.

iPad 3 specs are tipped to include a 9.7in 2048 x 1536 display, quad-core A6 processor, and 8MP iPhone 4S-style rear shooter.

The iPad 3 launch event is set for this Wednesday, March 7, and Apple tradition suggests that the iPad 3 release date will follow around 10 days later. However we’ve been warned that there might be iPad 3 stock shortages in Q1. Bah.

"In its two-year existence, the iPad’s price has remained unchanged"

Erm, when the iPad 1 came out it was £429 for the 16GB wasnt it? Which was then dropped to £399 for the iPad 2.

I suspect the price will stay the same, tho TBF im more interested tio see if they will have another iPad 2 firesale like last time, I suspect not if the runour that they will be keeping the iPad 2 as a "budget" option alongside the iPad 3

Right enough. Er, let's go with "largely unchanged". What's £30 between friends? :p
