Boom. Apple dropped a bomb on the tablet industry today with the iPad 2 announcement. But that’s not the big news. The original iPad prices have been slashed. Here are the new changes, from the Canadian Apple Store:
16GB: $419 (was $549)
32GB: $519 (was $649)
64GB: $619 (was $749)
WiFi + 3G Models:
16GB: $549 (was $679)
32GB: $649 (was $779)
64GB: $749 (was $879)
The original 16GB Wifi model used to be $549 in Canada. It has been discounted by $130. That’s a massive discount after one year. If you sold your iPad before the iPad 2 announcement, consider yourself lucky! Refurb iPads in the US store are even cheaper.
Like Steve Jobs said, tablet competitors are going to have a hard time keeping up with Apple’s pricing. The new Android tablet from Motorola, the XOOM starts at $799. Ouch.
