reports are apple just cut orders with their suppliers

either something new is coming soon, products aren't selling or they made too much

i'd guess that stuff is not selling. i have a second generation ipad with 64gb and not going to upgrade for a year or two

I just called my local Walmart in Massachusetts and after checking with two people was told the iPad was not on sale.

I just bought mine from Walmart last week and was ready to go get a price match, but the deal does not seem to be true or maybe is just not active yet?

Woohoo!! Glad I could help out MacRumors again. Very, very quick to act. I'm surprised that was posted on Facebook and nowhere else yet. Keep up the great work, everyone. Always amazes me how fast you guys can get stories out.

Perfect timing, just about to buy an iPad, will wait till Monday.

Does the $30 gift card apply to Canada?
I'm seeing $458 at Wal-Mart Canada for the iPad.

You certainly wouldn't want to associate with THOSE kind of people.

People of quality, such as yourself, must not allow themselves to be seen with THOSE people.

I mean, really, you must maintain some standards or the peasants will start to think they are as good as you.

Don't give in...maintain your standards...the hell with the money...there are more important things at stake here!

Micro Center is offering deals on iPads now - they're not going down $100, but you can get $40 off of the iPad 4 or get a 3rd gen 16gb for $399 or 32gb for $449 - in-store only.

Well, except the reports are that they cut component orders because they weren't able to assemble them fast enough and demand remains strong.

Iphone 5 has been on sale multiple times since november her in canada for $79 for a 16gb (on contract) and ipad 4s have been having price reductions of $30 every week it seems... $100 off is crazy but i bet there is going to be some surprised people (you readers) come sales numbers regarding ipads and android tablets. As far as I can see the ipad minis are flying off the shelves along with android tablets (nexus 7s). Ipad 4s have not been moving at all here this is apple scrambling trying to move the inventory. Boxing day sales will be simular i bet.

Was this kind of sale on iPhone and iPad prevalent during last Christmas?

Is this a loss leader to bring people to the stores or heaven forbid, these are not selling as well as forecast-ed?

That is what I am trying to figure out.

wow.. discounts already? i've never seen this before with apple. could be bad times for apple since in-demand products never go on sale.

Has anyone found any info confirming the iPad 4th Gen $399 price? All I've seen so far is people saying that Walmart is not offering this price. Is it possible that price will go into effect on Monday?

Hey don't let facts get in the way of good FUD. These day traders have lots of AAPL they need to sell.

in the USA the carriers have family plan contracts. at 4 lines the cost is cheap enough not to bother with paying full price and going prepaid.

well if they just cut component orders it probably means they are expecting to make/sell less product than they planned last week or a few weeks ago when they first put the orders in?
