Saying that, the good news for Apple fans is that the prices of iPad 2 have been slashed down to $399 for the WiFi only version.

You can now preorder the new iPad here. As of now it is not available in many countries. Though you can always buy a ‘new’ iPad2.

P.S: I am just confused about naming the latest iPad as “The New iPad” . Does that mean the iPad2 won’t be available as a ‘new’ one ? ;) Apple … something seems to be wrong with you.
