Now that the new iPad 4 is out, where is the best place to sell your old iPad (or other gadget)?

Now that the new iPad 4 is out, where is the best place to sell your old iPad (or other gadget)?
Believe us, we might be less than thrilled about today’s iPad 4 announcement if we had just picked up a third generation model within the past few weeks. If you just bought one within the past 30 days, it may be possible to trade-up for a new one. If that option is not available to you, and you are the type of person who must have the latest and greatest from Apple (or whomever your favorite OEM may be) then you will want to consider selling it.  If you have not done that before, the task is not so daunting.

Fortunately, you have more options than once existed several years ago. Sites like eBay or Craigslist are still very effective, but if you like to keep all your options open, check out some of these ideas for unloading your old gadget to help fund your purchase toward a new one.

Bear in mind, there are no guarantees with any of these options, in other words, “your mileage may vary” so get fully informed before you make a decision to strike a deal. All these sites will also deal with most devices or gadgets you might be looking to sell, we used the 3rd generation iPad as an example simply because it barely made it seven months before being replaced.

Of course, even these are not your only options, so share with us your experiences with other sites that may help a fellow gadget geek out.  Happy selling.

It shocks me that u would blast apple for doing something once, that google and its hardware partners are notorious for doing all the time. U then call apple typical, typical means something that's done with regularity. For apple this is the opposite. And I only mention android, cuz your avatar suggests u to b an android user/slash apple basher.

eBay, it's worth the work. You'll likely get $100 more than most of these sites are offering.

It may make sense for those that have purchased an iPhone 5. This way their connectors are all the new ones.

An old article but even more relevant today with the release of the iPad Air just in time for Christmas. Phone, tablet and gadget recycling is getting more popular across America all of the time. Comparison sites such as sellmycellphones.com aim to only compare reputable and trustworthy recycling companies so that users can make an impartial choice. Using a comparison site such as Sell My Cell Phones saves you time and can also help you to get the best deal available. Electronics recycling is a great cause and the more we recycle the better it is for the environment.

Keep on spreading the word!

Here is warning from CNET: iPhone "Restore" does not delete personal data
t.co/GKD9KxiLXy

So when you want to sell your old iPad for a new iPad, you should erase your personal data on iPad
