Gazelle reports 10,000 customers trading in their iPads for a new iPad 2
Gazelle is an electronics buy-back company, much like NextWorth, which will give you cash for your older technology products. According to Gazelle, as many as 10,000 original iPad owners are trading in their device to leverage the cost of an iPad 2. They report that there were more iPad trade-ins last week than any other product in their history.
And Gazelle is offering pretty competitive pricing. For a 16GB WiFi iPad, Gazelle offers $300, and they'll pay $530 for a 64GB 3G iPad. Just hours after the iPad 2 announcement, Gazelle had already received 2400 iPad trade-ins. As the trade-in values vary with demand, the trade-in value of the original iPad is likely to drop.
Gazelle offers a number of payment options, including checks, PayPal, Walmart Prepaid Visa, and Amazon.com gift cards. Or you can choose to donate the payment to any of the 100+ Gazelle-approved charities.

Its funny, there was so little new about the the new 1.1 version that people still want the old one. Pathetic. Another flop.

What's more funny is you posting comments on all Apple related articles when you believe it to be a flop company with flop products :) Now that's funny :)

Some people are stupid for wasting their money on APPLE products. Learn from your mistakes. NEVER BUY ANYTHING FIRST product from APPLE cause they will always make 2 or 3rd products anyway.

Because we all know every other company in the world will only make ONE product and stop after that... So you buy those first releases.... Idiot...

I love Apple, but if I had an original iPad, I would trade it in for the iPad 2.

Apps developers must never learned from Vindows 6.5 cannot be upgrade to Windows 7.0, what happen when new Windows 8 arrive and Windows 7.0 cannot be upgrade. It is a developers business but I learned from my Windows 6.5 phone no more Windows in my life.
