UPDATE: Check out our Hands on: new iPad review

In the wake of the new iPad, the old iPad (that's the iPad 2, to its friends) has had something of a price cut.

You'll now be able to nab a 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad 2 for $399 in the States, which will comes out at £329 in the UK.

That is a crazily low amount of money for an Apple tablet – in fact, it's pretty low for any tablet – and could put paid to the rumours of a lower-cost iPad Mini to compete with the likes of the $199 Kindle Fire.

So you want an iPad but aren't sure whether the upgrade is worth forking out the extra cash? Watch our video comparison of the 2 models:

It looks as though the iPad 2 will only be available in 16GB iterations though, with the Wi-Fi and 3G model coming in at $529 in the US and £429 in the UK.

That means there's only £70 between the 16GB Wi-Fi only iPad 2 and the 16 GB Wi-Fi only "new iPad" (or iPad 3, if you're old school).
