So now that the new iPad is here, what about the iPad 2?

Well, it’s continuing. And it’s dropping $100. That means a 16GB iPad 2 with WiFi will only cost $399, and the 16GB iPad 2 3G will cost $529. No other options or capacities anymore.

That’s a nice discount, but hardly comes close to competing with the Kindle Fire at $199. But then again, Apple doesn’t feel like it has to.
