If you were thinking of buying an iPad this week, we’d probably hold off, as rumours are suggesting a refresh could be literally right around the corner.

Sources are suggesting that across the board, retailers are beginning to drop the price of the iPad 2, while others are running out of stock and not replacing it.

While that certainly doesn’t mean a refresh is guaranteed, the stock and price news combined with the sheer amount of rumours we’re seeing suggests that Apple will indeed be announcing something fresh in a matter of days.

The Apple iPad 3 is rumoured to feature a high resolution Retina grade screen, faster processor, and possible 4G LTE connectivity for faster mobile Internet speeds.
