My guess is that by keeping the iPad 2 available at the $399 price point, Apple is positioning it for the educational market. With Apple already announcing initiatives aimes at bringing textbooks to the devices, it makes sense that they would offer a less expensive version of the iPad to schools in order to encourage rapid adoption.
