Geek Smack! Topic of the Week: Is an iPad Price Cut in the Future?
According to Goldman Sachs, they believe the iPad will soon cut their prices. The Kindle Fire and nook color are coming out in the next couple days, at $199 and $250, there is a lot of concern these tablets will finally dig into market share of the iconic tablet.
So the real question is: Will Apple cut the price of iPad? Will they just offer a first generation iPad for a discount price?
Don’t expect the iPad to drop to $250. Maybe $399 at the most. But when the iPad3 comes out next year, it could be right back up to $499.
