Here’s two more bits of good news from Apple’s new iPad event today:
Pricing for the new iPad is the same as it has been for the original iPad and the iPad 2 – starting at $499 for a 16GB WiFi only model and going up to $829 for the 64GB WiFi + 4G model. I mentioned that I would bet on prices staying at the same level in my Eve of the new iPad launch event post last night. I’m glad to see I got most things right in there.
The second bit of good news is that the iPad 2 will stay around and be sold for just $399 for a 16GB WiFi only model. That’s a heck of a good entry level price for an iPad 2. It should help lessen the temptation for new tablet buyers to look at less-capable $199 tablets and also lead to much bigger overall iPad sales numbers this year.
