Gazelle Sells to Coinstar’s Parent Company ➝

Erin Griffith, writing for Fortune:

In 2013, the company had $113 million in revenue.

That year, Apple launched its own trade-in program. This year it launched one for non-Apple phones.

Apple’s move may have hurt Gazelle’s sales. Last week, with hardly a peep, the Gazelle sold to a kiosk business called Outerwall for just $18 million.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Trade-ins of Samsung Phones Tripled ➝

Tom Higgins, writing for Bloomberg:

When Apple’s main product, featuring bigger displays and faster chips, goes on sale starting in Australia, they may be best remembered as the generation of iPhones that won over consumers from rival smartphones.

He spoke with Chris Sullivan, CEO of Gazelle, who said that they were receiving a lot more Android devices as trades-ins this year than they did last year during the lead up to the iPhone 5s and 5c release.
