Thousands of Owners Ditch Old iPads for Newer Model

Owners of the first-gen iPad are rushing to sell their tablets, according to online gadget-buyer Gazelle. In the hour after the new iPad 2 was announced yesterday, the company bought over 2,000 used iPads. This compares to 1,200 iPhones which Gazelle bought during the entire first day after the iPhone 4 was announced last summer.

Clearly the new iPad’s features –- a thinner, lighter body and a pair of cameras — are enough to make people want to ditch their ugly, fat old iPads and upgrade to the newer model.

The story is too old to be commented.
