What happened to the 3rd gen iPad? The 2nd gen iPad is still for sale after the 4th gen release, but not the 3rd.

I bought my 1st gen iPad after the 2nd gen was released, and hoped to save a few dollars by buying a 3rd gen now that the 4th has been released.

    You can buy a refurb iPad 3 for $379 on the Apple Store website. From everything I've read, Apple refurbs are unbeatable. Same 1-year warranty, new battery and shell. Plus, you could use all your "old" chargers and accessories with this iPad.
