Apple is getting all the ducks in a line to release the iPad. The iPad struck me as an over-sized iTouch and tightly locks you into Apple. Funny how those Apple fanbois complain about Microsoft lock-in…
Back to the point I want to make. Apple is showing signs they may have priced the iPad too high even for its lemmings of fans out there. In this Wall Street Journal blog post it is hinted that Apple may cut the iPad prices if the sales aren’t there.
“Shope also wrote that despite the seemingly aggressive pricing of the iPad — the lower-than-expected price points range from $499 to $829 — Apple seemed to indicate it would respond with price cuts if demand for the device wasn’t revving up the way it liked. “While it remains to be seen how much traction the iPad gets initially, management noted that it will remain nimble (pricing could change if the company is not attracting as many customers as anticipated),” Shope wrote.”
So want to save some money on an iPad? Just sit back and wait. Seeing how many fanbois are already wetting themselves over the iPad I don’t think Apple will be cutting the prices anytime soon.
