The future for this device has been discussed over and over again. IMO, at best, they would be adding casual gaming capabilities to the device. At the price points you suggested, there is little reason to think they can sell at those prices.Are you sure? I'm pretty sure they do. They had millions and millions of iPad 2 and iPad Mini 1 in backlog inventory. That is way to this day they sell the iPad Mini 1 with now a old A5 chip. Excess inventory.
