The first-of-its-kind Samsung Galaxy Tab is expected to sweep the handheld device market with features that haven’t been offered in an all-in-one smartphone or laptop before — including a 7-inch LCD screen, which makes the Galaxy much smaller, lighter and more portable than the iPad and more capable than the iPhone. The new Samsung will also run on Android 2.2 and support Flash 10.1, as well as offer Google Maps Navigation, Thinkfree Office, Swype, Hybrid Widgets and over 70,000 apps.
But what’s creating the greatest hubbub is the Samsung Galaxy’s price. Amazon originally had it listed for £799 in the U.K., until recently dropping it to £680 amidst customer outrage. In the U.S., the Samsung Galaxy is priced at $200 to $400 because of the subsidies paid by carrier networks.
Even with a £120 price drop, in order to afford the new Samsung mobile phone, British customers would practically have to take out a new line of credit. Or they could apply a less painful solution – selling their unused and non-working mobiles and making some spare cash. You can even sell old Samsung mobile phones, amongst other brands.
Mobile phone recycling websites like Compare and Recycle give customers the choice of which company they’d like to recycle their phone with – by listing, side by side, each company’s price, payment methods and customer ratings – ensuring that customers get the most for their old models.
Previously popular Samsung models like the B7610 Omnia Pro go for about £90 on most sites. Even much older flip phones are still worth a couple of pounds. These mobile phone recycling sites make turning in and selling your old phones easy too. Many times recyclers will pay for the shipping of your phone and offer quick payment through Paypal. And no matter what, they will always dispose of your old mobile properly. Recycled phones are often refurbished for parts, given to charity or fixed and sold in third world countries.
