We all love a bargain, and with the prices of Apple gear being what they are, you would love to save some money right? According to Credit Suisse analyst Bill Shope, Apple executives have said that the pricing will be “nimble” on the iPad. It depends on the demand.
Now that’s not the same as an official confirmation that there will be a price drop, but it makes a lot of sense. If they lower the $499 price point they might actually have competitors worried. A lower price would certainly help any fence-sitters make up their minds to buy.
