iPad Mini on sale at Walmart $299

I keep debating whether to buy an Ipad mini or wait for the Ipad mini 2. Today Walmart slashed prices on 16 gb iPad mini to 299. I called Apple and they will price match it. I am hesitant after reading the posts. Should I get it or wait for the Ipad mini 2

There won't be a spring event so iPad Mini 2 most likely in the fall.

Just saw that online that it was $299. It said rollback so I'm guessing that's going to be the regular price. Probably what it should have sold for at release.

So does this mean refurbs will be even cheaper...

I still haven't ruled out a summer release for a mini. I would like a cellular version though

Ipad mini still sell really good so i doubt they would try to release anything before last quarter.

Im more worry about ipod touch 5 because now they are at the same price.

Well I felt the same way, the ipad mini selling real well so this is surprising. I don't think Walmart is loaded with Minis either at least not at locations I frequent but maybe their warehouses are?

Maybe a Mini 2 is coming sooner than I anticipated, reading rumors though it does not appear that is the case.

No lower price for the current Mini would sway me to buy it. I tried it twice, it went back twice and the 4 gives me my current happy face.
