While the latest is predictable, any thoughts on the last years model. iPad mini 1st Gen. Very likely drop to $229. It will be interesting to see how well it will sell compared to the latest hardware selection of Nexus, GalaxyTabs and Fires that start at $199 vs the nearly 2 year old guts (based on iPad 2) in the Mini. iPad 2 still hang around at $399? While it did have mid life CPU upgrade, its really old, but the rub is it's dirt cheap to make (~$160?), has tons of accessories, and budget strapped schools love it! Apple could drop it to $299, fly off of Wal-Mart shelves! Still more then Mini 2, so I don't see conflict there, and iPod Touch is a different beast. Or Will iPad 4 replace the iPad 2 as the low end full size iPad offering? Or will both old models be on market? (perhaps the iPad 2 only for education market?) Considering that Apple replaced the iP5 with iP5c, Apple does change things around.
