Don't Miss: This How to find Fingerlings in Stock

Another sign of the inevitable

Apparently someone at Best Buy's holiday weekend third-string IT team made a boo-boo, and accidentally put up three new iPads on the company's online store. What could this mean?

The launch of a new version of the iPad is seen as a question of when rather than if. Rumors have suggested Apple is planning the next round in its tablet lineup to be available in the spring.

No official details have surfaced, though.

Best Buy's new stock-keeping units (SKUs) were listed as "APPLE IPAD SKU WIFI" and "coming soon." Prices ranged from around $600 - $700, but other than that, there was no information listed for any of the products.

In addition to a faster processor and better display, the iPad 2 is reported to contain USB connectivity, multitasking out of the box, a much slimmer form factor, and dual digital cameras.

The question remains whether Best Buy added these SKUs because of an official behind-closed-doors word from Apple, or just as a preemptive measure for when the new iPad family is actually announced.

Either way, it's not commenting, and we're just left in a shroud of darkness.
