Recycle mobile phone to join the iPad revolution
23 June 2010 — 11:57 AM
More than three million people have now bought an Apple iPad, with many potentially selling their old mobile phone and putting the cash towards it.
The manufacturer has announced the figure has been reached, despite the device only being available for some 80 days.
"People are loving iPad as it becomes a part of their daily lives. We're working hard to get this magical product into the hands of even more people," Steve Jobs, chief executive officer at Apple, said.
And for some, the best way to join the large group of iPad users could be to sell their used mobile for cash and use the funds to buy from Apple.
If they do, the benefits include access to more than 11,000 apps specially designed by iPad developers, as well as the ability to use more than half of the 225,000 apps already in place for devices such as the iPhone.
Apple is due to release its latest handset, the iPhone 4, in the UK tomorrow (June 24th).
