With the introduction of the new iPad, Apple has dropped prices on each version of the iPad 2 by $100.A 16 GB WiFi model is $399 and a 16 GB WiFi+3G model is $529.

9to5Mac did a little digging and found that Micro centre is offering the iPad 2 at an even cheaper price of $360 for the same 16 GB WiFi model.

Prices like these will help Apple aggressively assert its place in the tablet market.

Our own editor Matt Rosoff put it best: “At $399, the iPad 2 is going to make life very hard for Samsung, Google/Motorola, HP, and every other tablet maker out there.”
