    iPad 2 have been marked as discontinued at Target according to a source who sent Iapplenow.com the above screenshots. Though these only show the 16GB iPad 2 3G on both Verizon and AT&T as being discontinued, our source maintains none of the current SKUs are long for Targetís shelves.

    That implies that we will not be ordering more, which implies a new iPad is forthcoming rather soon (October-ish, say). Either that or Targetís exiting the iPad business, which seems unlikely. A lot of the cases have gone clearance too.

    TiPb previously heard that while Apple was considering moving it up to a fall release, iPad 3 had been pushed back again to spring, perhaps because the 2048◊1536 Retina Displays couldnít yet be made cheaply enough at sufficient yield rates.

    If thatís accurate, and the discontinued status isnít a glitch in the system, what this portends for current iPad 2 SKUs, or Targetís iPad business is uncertain.
