Best Buy over the weekend began advertising a $50 price cut on the iPad 2, seemingly signaling that Apple's iPad 3 is really on the way.

The Best Buy price cuts are good for any model, from 16GB to 32GB to 64GB, including Wi-Fi and 3G versions. So a 16GB model with Wi-Fi, usually priced at $500, is on sale for $450, and the high-end 64GB model with Wi-Fi and 3G, usually priced at $830, is now priced at $780.

Apple iPad markdowns are rare, with the last major ones coming on Black Friday in November. Some competitors have really gone after Apple on pricing of late, too, with Amazon making its pitch that you can get three Kindle products for the price of one iPad 2.
