The Snugg Advises iPad Users On What To Do With Their Old iPads As The Release Of The iPad 3 Looms
With the announcement of the 3rd Generation iPad just around the corner, The Snugg investigates ways for people to put their old iPad to better use.
The iPad 3 has finally arrived. After months of rumours and speculation, Apple has invited a select group of people to view the unveiling of the iPad 3 on the 7th of March at the Yerba Buena Center for Arts in San Francisco.
“Until that date, rumours will continue to circulate regarding pricing, although it’s widely held that the iPad 3 will likely be more expensive than its predecessor,” states Richard Mercer, Managing Director of the The Snugg.
“For those Apple fans that have an iPad 2, now is probably the best time to trade it in. According to the iPad 3 News Blog, the increasing hype has seen trade-ins on Gazelle.com rise by almost 400%, and so the trade-in price is decreasing. If you want a lump sum to contribute towards the latest incarnation of the iPad, it’s not a bad way to go. Although, with that said, there are plenty of more creative uses for your old iPad if you don’t need the extra money; Cultofmac.com showcases a variety of iPads that have been housed in the cases of old Mac computers, so you could keep a retro mac/ipad in your kitchen, just in case you want to look up a new recipe. The possibilities are endless,” says Mercer.
Some users are a little more cautious however, with rumours that the iPad 3 might be significantly different and more expensive; they’re biding their time to determine whether or not it’s worth upgrading so soon.
“Apple is quite lucky in that it has managed to establish a cult-like fan base who will buy the latest iteration before they’ve even had a chance to use one. That said however, with the iPhone 4S having debuted not so long ago… some Apple fans may find themselves a little out of pocket, so it can make sense to wait. Besides Gazelle, Amazon and RadioShack are currently offering more for used iPad 2 models right now, where Amazon will trade you a gift card for up to $360, whereas RadioShack will give you cash up to the value of $320 if you drop off an iPad in-store; compared to Gazelle’s current $240 offering,” says Mercer.
Whether you’re sticking to your iPad 2 or upgrading, The Snugg has you covered. They will continue to sell their popular iPad 1 Case and iPad 2 Cover; whilst they also hope to have an equally brilliant iPad 3 Case ready for the early adopters when the iPad 3 hits the shelves all over the world.
“Much like our best-selling iPad 2 Cases, our new iPad 3 Cover will use the same high quality materials and will feature the same great craftsmanship, only in a slightly different form factor; so whether you need something corporate and stylish for business… Or whether you want something a little more casual, we’ll have something to suit you,” adds Mercer.
