UPDATE 1-Best Buy offers 30 pct off iPad 3 tablets in U.S. market

By Dhanya Skariachan

NEW YORK, April 3 (Reuters) - Retailer Best Buy Co is offering a 30 percent discount on its current stock of Apple iPad 3 tablets in the United States, a spokeswoman for the world’s largest consumer electronics chain said on Wednesday.

Retailers typically slash prices on products in the lead-up to a major launch of a new iPad or iPhone as a way of clearing old inventory, analysts have said.

“We’re not discounting the price of iPad minis currently -- however, we are offering 30% off all iPad 3’s right now,” Best Buy spokeswoman Carly Morris said in an e-mail to Reuters.
