Over the last week or so there have been a couple of ‘out there’ sort of iPad 3 rumors – one suggesting that prices for the iPad 3 (or whatever the next-gen model is named) would be around $80 higher than those of the iPad 2, and another saying the top level storage for the iPad 3 would be reduced to 32GB.
Both seemed very unlikely, and a recent report at 9to5Mac suggests that both are inaccurate.
We’ve gotten word that iPad pricing is going to be the same across the board as the current iPad 2 models which should be no big surprise given Apple’s history – they rarely raise prices. Even better, some countries with currencies doing better than the US dollar should expect to see marginal drops in prices. … While we’re squashing, the configurations appear to be the same as current 16/32/64GB.
Very good stuff. I fully expect iPad 3 prices to stay at the same level as the first two generations, and for the storage levels of 16/32/64GB to remain the same or perhaps even include a 128GB model as well.
