As the U.S patiently awaits the release of Apple’s new iPhone 4 handset on AT&T this week, we have found an interesting article for you to read which gives you an idea on just how many consumers are trading-in their current iPhones in preparation for the newest version.
Most of these trade-ins have taken place on Gazelle, one of the largest consumer electronics reCommerce service in the U.S.
Consumers have been trading in their older iPhone models for cash, and Gazelle is offering a pretty reasonable sum of money to those planning to pick up the iPhone 4 on June 24th. These include the iPhone 2G, 3G and 3GS.
Considering that the iPhone 3G will be discontinued as of June 7th, Gazelle are still offering customers up to $141 for trade-ins. Their latest data shows that 34% of consumers have chosen to trade their 3G in, while 58% of trade-ins represent the iPhone 3GS, which is worth up to $222. The remaining 8% is related to the iPhone 2G.
