Report says that Game Stop will soon start a program to trade in Android devices
A screenshot of Game Stop's internal computer system shows that the retailer is about to embark on a trade-in program for Android devices. Right now, the computer screenshot. shows that Game Stop will accept a trade for the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 tablet, the Google Nexus S and the Samsung Infuse 4G. The program is expected to begin this summer and will be available at all Game Stop locations by the end of the year with more devices being added to the program by then. Certainly the holiday shopping season will be a deadline for Game Stop to have the program fully up and running.

Game Stop has tried to become involved in the mobile device business for some time. Earlier this year, it had 1,000 units of the 16GB Apple iPhone 4S that it was selling for $550 off-contract. Last October, the retailer reportedly tried out a plan to sell Android tablets in 200 stores and a month earlier there was speculation that a Game Stop Android flavored tablet was being considered. With a large number of stores across the nation and a young, technology-focused customer base, Game Stop could be a great location to sell mobile devices either new, or via a trade.
