Walmart has the iPad Mini 16 GB version for as low as $249. It's no big surprise really that Apple decided to cut prices and clear inventory at a faster rate with WDDC 2013 coming up for June 10th. Perhaps the firm is going to announce a new tablet(s) (possibly the next generation iPad and iPad Mini): why else would the price cuts be specific to their tablet brand only? Whatever it is, we'll find out soon enough!
