At the moment the closest we're going to get to an actual answer is from TechInsights, a group that's torn down the device and priced it all out. As it turns out, the pricing structure isn't all that different from the Kindle Fire, that tablet you got for Christmas then forgot about a month later.

Why iPad 2 still dominates Apple advertising in 2012

When the new iPad was released, we wondered how long it would be before Apple switched their billboard and bus stop advertising over to The New iPad - as it turns out, it doesn't appear that they ever will. Why is it that we're still seeing Apple displaying iPad 2 billboards across downtown Minneapolis, London, and San Francisco - aka across the United States and across the ocean to the UK?

iPad dominance dips but Android still playing catch-up

Apple's tablet market-share has dipped but the iPad looks set to continue dominating the segment over the next four years despite the best efforts of Android rivals, according to research firm predictions. The iPad held 54.7-percent of the worldwide tablet market-share in Q4 2011, IDC's figures suggest, down from 61.5-percent in the previous quarter, though those figures disguise the fact that Apple shipped more than 4m units more in Q4. By 2016, meanwhile, the iPad is set to ship 94.7m units per year, for 48-percent of the overall tablet market.

Apple Moves Forward Wherever Jobs Happens to Be

Apple Moves Forward Wherever Jobs Happens to Be

Since January 17th when Apple founder and CEO Steve Jobs mailed employees a notification that he'd be taking another medical leave of absence, there's been more than a little bit of talk about what might happen to Apple and indeed the greater tech world should he step away from the head post. A study that's just been released by RBC Capital Markets and ChangeWave suggests that not only will only a tiny percentage of possible Apple customers say they'd be less likely to buy Apple products in a future without Jobs, but the vast majority of these people polled in this study said his departure would have no effect on their possible buying habits at all.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 50 2010

Welcome to this week's edition of the SlashGear Week in Review! This is the last edition before Christmas; I hope you have your shopping done!
