Apple Slashes Original iPad Prices To Clear Australian Stock

There’s a little over three weeks to go before the iPad 2 hits Australia, but if you’re not so fussed about the latest and greatest, Apple is selling off its original iPad stock at a serious reduction to the original launch price.

Apple’s local online store got updated this morning and the prices across the board for the original iPad have been heavily reduced, as you can see in the table below:

In the US, where the new iPad 2 is selling at a similar price to the original and comes out two weeks earlier, there isn’t a similar offer, with pre-orders for the new model now the only option in the online store.

I’m going to hazard a guess that the prices for the new iPad 2, which haven’t been confirmed for Australia yet, will come in higher than these numbers. However, we won’t know for sure until the Australian pricing announcement, which could be anytime between now and March 25.
