  • Is Best Buy Getting Ready for the iPad 2?

    An image thought to be from Best Buyís inventor database is fueling rumors that the retail giant is getting ready for the latest iPad model. Anticipation for the iPad 2 is already at a fevered pitch and the release date may not be until April, if Apple keeps to its usual yearly schedule. Nevertheless, leaked images such as these are always an intriguing find.

    While these pictures may be nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of some inventory associate, the fact that there are only three iPad models listed, is quite interesting. Two of the iPad models are listed at the same price point. Is Apple planning a price increase, or do these prices, point to something else altogether? The models listed here may just turn out to be the Verizon iPad with Mi-Fi Hotspot bundle, but I hope that isnít the case. I guess weíll just have to be patient a little bit longer to find out.

    With so much speculation surrounding the iPad 2, will Apple be able to meet peopleís high expectations for the latest model? Probably. Over the last few years, Apple has elevated hype to an art form and they have become grand masters of the craft. If Apple is as productive as last year, itíll be another year to remember. Letís just hope the weather warms up before anyone starts lining up outside of the Apple Store.

      I hope it won't be more expensive than the origional, the price is already a problem for many people trying to justify buying one. Raising it would just hurt the amount that apple sells

      What are the chances that will happen tho. Apple rarely makes anything more expensive. They know the price point is competitive with tons of other tablets, and even computers out right now. I doubt they will make it more expensive.

      I thought bb won't be able to sell it till October. Apple first and then other retailers 6 months later is what ive read.

      I agree! This would be nice!

      Camera would be nice but think we would look stupid taking pictures with it because of the size but if it has one I won't complain! And we can always use better display!

      I was also surprised at the weight.... thought it would be on the lighter side...

      I think the rear camera will be better suited for business users

      the obvious and only way to reduce the weight is to have less battery...then people will complain why is their iPad 2 dies so fast...

      No doubt the weight is all in the battery. Unless they invent another new technology I doubt it will be much lighter

      The iPad 2 is going to be awesome. Probably won't have a ton of new things, but enough to make it a hot seller...again

      I didnt jump at getting the first edition ipad because it didnt have the features I was looking for. However I have patiently waited a year for the second ipad and I am now primed and ready .
      What is the process of how these are going to be sold? Is it sold by ordering through Apple first ? How long before you can find them at Best Buys or other stores? And what are the other stores ?
      Sorry for the questions, but I suffer from I.K.D. (Ipad Knowledge Deficiency)

      Because real football is played in the snow and blistering cold. Nothing like your beer freezing as it's poured from the can. :-)

      How ironic that while watching the Bears/Seahawks game today with my manager, he said he went to a game where it was freezing and "his beer froze".

      I can't say I'm a fan of frozen beer. I do like it cold as possible, but I at least want to drink it!!!

      And just because I said I'm in Texas and I don't understand people enjoying freezing weather, I also don't like having the months of 100 degree + weather for over a month that I witnessed here in Dallas. I'm from Los Angeles. I'm used to perfect weather /year round/. ;-P

      I am in fact a bears fan and a chicago native. I hate it up here, we get nasty cold and super humid heat. But if there is one thing adrenaline is good for it's "a bears game in winter"

      I love it, BEARS ARE GOING ALL THE WAY. Yaaaaaaaaaaa

      I am not surprised /in any way/ that the Bears won today. They are a GREAT team.! I myself am a person for watching the unexpected, the underdog is always my favorite to watch!!! I mean "come on"...... I think it would be better to see the upset of having the Jets win it all.... Since it's been what..... Superbowl 3. It's just my opinion.

      So, anyone have any inside about best buy not getting the iPad till October? It really wouldn't matter but I got bb gift cards for Xmas. So whatever tablet goes to best buy first will be coming home. I just hope it's an iPad but I'll do android just as easy.
