Hot on the heels of Apple dumping all iPad 2 models except the 16GB and Dick Smith selling off the entire range at bargain prices, Big W has joined the fray. Its prices are mostly $1 lower than Dick Smith, and I'd imagine other retailers will also be playing in similar areas.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
Having promised to sell the iPad 2 on contract earlier this month, Vodafone has released pricing today, one day before it apparently begins selling the devices. We haven't seen the iPad 2 on any contract offers in Australia before, but will that payment flexibility be enough to overcome well-established cynicism in the market about Vodafone's actual 3G network?

With just over two days to go until the iPad 2 launches in Australia on Friday, Apple has finally set local pricing for the device. The weird thing? If you go to an Apple Store to buy it, you'll have to wait until 5pm.
Dear Lifehacker, I am travelling to the US next week for work, and I would like to pick up an iPad 2. Assuming I can find one, I would be looking for a Wi-Fi only model. Would there be any disadvantages to buying in the US as opposed to Australia? Will it work with my Australia iTunes account OK? Thanks, Tablet Traveller
It's coming at the end of March, and I for one will be buying an iPad 2 when it hits the shelves. Whether a first time buyer or an upgrader, here's five reasons you should be buying the new iPad.
In a little over three weeks, you'll be able to buy a shiny new iPad 2. But if you've already got an iPad, then the reasons for actually shifting to the new model are somewhat slim. Here's my take on why.
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.
