I posted an article sometime back on the impeccable resale values of Apple products in general and more specifically the iPhone's resale value and my reasoning was that Apple hardware does not go out of date as fast as other devices. Today at the heels of Apple releasing the new iPhone 5C & the iPhone 5S every site out there is talking about where and how to sell your old iPhone or any other smartphone to get the newly released iPhones. One such article was posted on Gizmodo and details many already well know facts.
Oh boy broken iPhones are almost as worthy as functional HTC phones! So much for proponents of the theory "hardware improvements are not worth it and have reached a peak".
