(PRWEB UK) 22 February 2013
With new Citi analyst figures showing Apple fans are flocking to the 7” iPad Mini, tech recycling firm Gadget Panda is reminding consumers they can sell iPad 10” tablets through its website.
Gadget Panda ensures old devices are recycled, so they don’t end up abandoned in attics or contributing to landfill.
According to an article published in CNET year-on-year fourth-quarter sales of the larger, original iPad fell by nine percent in the US and by 26% in Japan following the iPad Mini’s introduction in October 2012.

The figures, pulled from an investors note released by Citi analyst Glen Yeung, suggest customers are abandoning the standard 10” iPad in favour of its smaller sibling.
The iPad Mini has similar specs to the larger tablet, using the same operating system and boasting the same battery life. However, it is more portable, thanks to its smaller 7” screen size and lighter weight.
Gadget Panda spokesman Leonard Stumke explained: “It’s hardly surprising that people seem to be swapping their old iPads for the new Mini model – after all, it does pretty much everything Apple’s bigger tablet does, just in a smaller, more portable package.
“However, as customers pick up the new version, there’s a real risk of their old models being forgotten about, or, worse, dumped in landfill, which creates horrible e-waste nobody wants.
“So, don’t let your gadgets go to waste. Sell iPad models to us for quick cash that you can use to help pay for a new iPad Mini.”
Gadget Panda allows customers to sell iPad, iPod and iPhone models, as well as smartphones, mobiles, tablets and handheld game devices from manufacturers like Sony, Blackberry, HTC, Google and Nintendo.
Gadgets in good condition get the best prices, with customers usually receiving payment within 48 hours.
