The iPad 3 is rumored to be announced on March 7th, so now is the time to sell your old iPad 1 or 2 if you plan on upgrading. Back up your device in iTunes and get rid of it while you still can (if you can live without one until the iPad 3 release of course).
Historically, the iPad 1’s price dropped steadily before the reveal of the iPad 2 until the actual release, and more than likely the same will happen with the announcement of iPad 3. Check out the chart below provided by NextWorth that graphs the percentage change in price (on eBay) of the iPad 1 over the period where the iPad 2 is announced and released.
