    Want an iPad 3? Sell Your iPad 2 Now

    iStockphoto

    Listen up, Apple fans: save your personal files to your iCloud in the sky, and delete your apps – because the time is nigh to sell your iPad 2.

    Re-sale prices for the iPad 2 will fall as the official launch date for the iPad 3 — widely expected to be March 7 — edges closer, experts say. Consumers can expect to see a steep decline in value in the two to three weeks prior to the unveiling of the newer device, says Mark LoCastro, spokesman for sale aggregator site DealNews.com. “You’ll receive a higher resale value for your used device if you part with it now, rather than waiting for the newer generation to be announced,” he says.

    Would iPad 3 Spoil Apples Under the Tree?

    iStockphoto

    The release of a new version of Apple’s tablet in February might rankle those who give or receive an iPad this month.

    The company may be gearing up for its release of the iPad 3 in just two months,according to a report by Richard Gardner, an analyst with Citigroup Global Markets, citing several unnamed sources.  The news might seem a cruel joke to those giving and receiving an iPad this month, but it’s unlikely to keep gadget buyers from holding off, analysts say.

    Nook Fights Fire With Higher Prices

    Barnes & Noble says its new Nook Tablet outmatches the Amazon’s Kindle Fire on everything except price.

    Unveiled this morning, the new device costs $249 – that’s $50 more expensive than the Kindle Fire, although still half the cost of an entry-level iPad. Barnes & Noble makes the case that the Nook is worth the extra $50, but analysts are not so sure. “It’s not groundbreaking,” says Peter Wahlstrom, senior analyst with Morningstar research. “But the difference in price and services on the Nook Tablet is enough to give customers pause for thought.”

    In its favor, the Nook has 16 gigabytes of memory or twice the memory than the eight-gigabyte Kindle Fire (six gigabytes of which are only available to customers for storage), and comes with Hulu Plus and Netflix apps pre-loaded – although users still need to pay for subscriptions. It also has one gigabyte of RAM – or random access memory – versus 512 megabytes  for the Kindle Fire. It also has free in-store customer support, and has nine hours of battery life, versus approximately eight for the Kindle Fire.

    Amazon’s New Tablet Overshadows Better Bargains

    Getty Images

    Amazon’s tablet announcement today could have far-reaching implications for your gadget use.

    The $199 “Kindle Fire” tablet is less than half the starting price of an iPad 2 and boasts Wi-Fi, Flash video and access to Android apps and games — as well as all the movies, books, songs and other digital content Amazon sells. Lest that make the old $114 Kindle look overpriced, Amazon replaced it with three new e-reader models, the cheapest of which is just $79.

    It’s the e-readers that are likely to make the bigger impact.
