Last week, Apple introduced the new iPad, called simply iPad. The demand for the new device has, according to Apple CEO Tim Cook, been through the roof and pre-sales have sold out in every single launch market. For many though, an iPad 2 at a discount might do the trick and if that’s the case, AT&T has a great offer going on for the iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G which checks in at a mere $429.
Remember, Apple has also slashed the prices on the iPad 2. From here on out, it’s only going to offer two models. A 16GB Wi-Fi only model which the company will be selling for $399 and a 3G + Wi-Fi model which is going to run you $529.
As you can see, AT&T’s price is a fairly deep discount.
Of course, the iPad 2 is the iPad 2 and 3G is 3G. That means that you won’t get all of the upgrades that are coming with the new iPad which include a Retina Display – with quadruple the resolution of the iPad 2, an upgraded camera, a faster A5X processor with quad-core graphics, and 4G LTE data speeds.
4G LTE can get up to 10 times faster than normal 3G, the same 3G found on this refurbished iPad 2.
AT&T’s refurbished devices are independently tested and reconditioned and come with a 90-day warranty, just in case something happens.
Those that wish to buy the iPad 2 new can either buy from Apple or take a look at Best Buy which recently dropped the price of the device by $100 across the board.
