3G iPad 2 marked as discontinued at Target?According to TiPb, a tipster sent them what appears to be photos of Target’s inventory, which showed that the 16GB 3G iPad 2 on both Verizon and AT&T are marked as discontinued. Given our previous report and reasonings on why Apple would not be releasing an iPad 3 this year, this is indeed rather puzzling as to why Target would be marking the 3G versions of the iPad 2 as being discontinued.

Based on what TiPb’s tipster told them:

“That implies that we will not be ordering more, which implies a new iPad is forthcoming rather soon (October-ish, say). Either that or Target’s exiting the iPad business, which seems unlikely. A lot of the cases have gone clearance too.”

What do you guys think? Did someone photoshop a Target inventory just to stir up some drama, or could it be a glitch in Target’s system, or could be something else entirely?
