Apple has reintroduced the fourth gen iPad today, only with a 16 GB capacity and this one is meant to replace the iPad 2, that was originally released in 2011. The Retina model is now priced at $399, which is $100 cheaper than the iPad Air.


There’s also a cellular model at $529. The iPad 2 is getting canned today, but I can’t help but wonder what happened to the experimental iPad 3, that had overheating and battery problems and sometimes moved slower than the iPad 2. The idea here is that the iPad 2 and iPad 3 have been phased out to make room for the models with Lightning ports and make the experience seamless between devices.

The iPad 4 comes with the mandatory 16 GB capacity choice, so that’s basically your iPad 2 now. It comes with a dual core Apple A6X CPU, a 5 megapixel iSight camera and a 1.2 MP FaceTime shooter. So, are you planning on getting one?
