Retailers Plan iPad 2 Price Cuts Before Third Gen Reveal

With word on the street pointing towards an iPad 3 reveal in early March, big retailers are gearing up to drop the price of the iPad 2 with hopes to clear their inventory.

The first to take the plunge appears to be the 16GB WiFi model which was dropped by $70 at Meijer. In addition to the base model dropping to $429, the online retailer has also reduced the price of the Smart Cover accessory to $35.

This $70 price cut is the biggest discount, to date, for the Apple tablet that released back in March of last year. Best Buy came close during the holiday rush, slashing $45 off all iPad 2 models on Black Friday.

The iPad 3 that is to be released sometime in March is a great match for kikin Browser, an iPad-exclusive browser that is available for download in the App Store: http://bit.ly/kikinappstore.  kikin Browser is unmatched by any other browser currently available for download, as it capitalizes on the touch-based features of the iPad to deliver a fast and easy browsing experience to its users.  kikin Browser’s most notable feature is its focus on ‘touch to go,’ which prompts users to long press words or phrases on a Web page so kikin Browser can bring up search and image results about those terms within that page.  This eliminates the need to venture to another page or tab for search results and streamlines the search process.  Learn more about kikin Browser at: http://bit.ly/kikinsite.
