Totem, the premier mobile phone buyback program offering the industry’s most competitive rates on used smartphones, will begin accepting first-generation and second-generation Apple iPads from consumers and business clients beginning Oct. 14, 2011.
Recognized by Time magazine in 2010 as the biggest technological breakthrough of the year, the iPad is the first handheld tablet computer to offer touchscreen capabilities. With more than 9.3 million sales to date and a base price of $499, the innovative device is poised to offer serious competition to the affordable netbook industry.
The size and weight of the portable tablet computer is the perfect alternative to a smartphone and laptop. All iPads offer Wi-Fi connection capabilities, while some models are equipped with a 3G interface to sync with data networks. The intuitive device also acts as an HD video player, iTunes music player and ebook reader. Additionally, more than 5,000 exciting new iPad apps have been added to the 200,000 apps already available in the Apple store. An astounding 93% of Fortune 500 companies have implemented iPad devices into their workforce fleet.
The new iPad buyback program is just one of the latest expansions launched by this growing company. In mid-September, Totem began accepting outdated and broken devices from businesses and nonprofit organizations that employ a mobile workforce. As the iPad infiltrates mainstream culture, more units are showing up in the workplace. “This just made a lot of sense, to begin accepting iPads. Our client companies of Totem for Business immediately followed up on their smartphone recycling needs with tablets as well. With the Department of Defense compliant secure data-erasure services we are able to offer our clients, it was a great opportunity for them for us to assist them in monetizing and safely retiring their mobile workstations,” says Totem’s CEO Nicholas Fiorentino.
Totem offers consumers and business owners an eco-friendly and secure way to dispose of old technology while cashing in on their investments and upgrading to the latest devices. Whether the iPad is broken, gently used or in mint condition, when properly recycled, it can be refurbished and resold to new customers in emerging markets.
Totem is committed to providing the highest quality mobile buyback program in the industry, while remaining true to its values of social responsibility. The company’s expert team of resellers, refurbishers and recyclers work diligently to ensure that consumers have an easy, efficient method to dispose of their old technology in a financially lucrative, yet environmentally friendly manner.
