In further evidence that an iPad 2 launch is imminent, Best Buy has deleted the first generation iPad from its inventory. Best Buy’s inventory status is not always a good indicator of product launches, but combined with the news yesterday that Apple had cut off iPad supply in preparation for an iPad 2 announcement, this seems to be yet another indication that the iPad 2 will be announced at Apple’s event tomorrow.
According to Apple Insider, Apple may also have the iPad 2 available almost immediately for retail. The removal from Best Buy seems to support that, since the retailer would keep selling the iPad if a new one was not going to be available soon.
There are currently no placeholders for the iPad 2 at Best Buy, but that may change by tomorrow. We will keep you informed.
