After (almost exactly) 3 entire years of service, Apple has finally retired the trusty old iPad 2. The device was the last of the still-available iDevice lineup that depended on the old 30-pin dock connector, and was replaced on the Apple Store this morning with the 4th generation iPad. The latter device, which was presumed dead at the announcement of the iPad Air, is now available at the same price as the Retina iPad mini — starting at $399.
Awesome news. The iPad 2 is dreadfully underpowered in comparison to its currently-available siblings. Anyone interested in grabbing a 4th gen iPad?
