(PRWEB UK) 21 September 2012
As the hotly-anticipated iPhone 5 hits stores in the UK, savvy consumers are being urged to recycle iPhones with Gadget Panda to help fund an upgrade.
Millions of obsolete old mobile phones are currently gathering dust in drawers and boxes around the country: amounting to tonnes of e-waste which could be recycled and put back into use.
Tech recycling firm Gadget Panda offers cash payments for old phones, which can then be recycled, instead of being binned.
Apple, which makes the iPhone 5, had been swamped with more than two million pre-orders for the device, a figure they claim “shattered” previous pre-order records.
It also means at least two million old phones are already obsolete on the day the iPhone 5 goes on sale.
Apple says the iPhone 5 is the “biggest thing to happen to iPhone since iPhone” – essentially underpinning a ‘revolution’ in design features.
It features a retina display, offering HD images in a palm-sized 4-inch screen, a new, ultra-thin design, an 8MP camera, ultrafast WiFi, and a powerful new A6 chip, which allows the new iPhone to perform twice as fast as its predecessors.
The iPhone 5 goes on sale in the UK today and Gadget Panda is encouraging Apple fans to do their bit for the environment by recycling old phones.
“Even though a new iPhone model seems to pop up every few months, people are keen to upgrade, usually as soon as they can,” said Leonard Stumke, from Gadget Panda.
“The big question for them is: how do I sell my iPhone for cash? There’s no real point in hanging on to old iPhone models once the latest version is out.
“So, sell your iPhone to Gadget Panda, get some cash towards your iPhone 5 upgrade, and rest assured in the knowledge that your old phone will get a loving new home – far away from the lonely dust of a desk drawer, or the mounting gadget graveyard – because we will recycle it.”
Gadget Panda offers cash payments for old iPods, iPhones and Nintendo DS systems, usually within 48 hours of receiving the item. Cash payments vary depending on the age, model and condition of recycled gadgets.
