Now that the Apple iPad 2 has been discontinued, those who want to pick this tablet are opting for the iPad 4 that was re-launched last week. They have as of now cancelled the release of iPad 2 and will offer the iPad 4 for the sake of replacing the earlier tablet. The iPad 4 is now known to be available at a rate of $399 for the 16 GB Wi-Fi model and a rate of $529 for the 16 GB Wi-Fi + cellular model. Apple had actually cancelled the release of iPad 4 last year when there was a launch of iPad Air. They have later reduced the price of the iPad 2 to $399 in the year 2012. This is possibly a way to get rid of their old stock, especially considering that iPad Air 2014 launch is also expected in the coming months.

Apple is expected to launch the iPad Air, iPhone 6 and iWatch this year. However, the launch of iPad Mini 3 will not happen th. Apple has not yet disclosed the features of the iPad 2. However, it is likely to follow the features of the predecessor along with a little improvement. So, the gadget freaks will have to wait for a considerable time for the release of the iPad 2.
