It seems like there’s a new generation of tablet coming out every month. It’s fun to have the state-of-the-art device, and if your current tablet is cracked, broken or just hopelessly out of date, it’s practically a necessity.

Also make sure to remove the device from your Google Account, and make extra sure you back up all your data to another location before starting this process.

When you sell your tablet, how much you can get for it will depend on a number of factors, including the condition of your device, what generation it is and how in demand your particular model is. You may want to look at what other tablets similar to yours are selling for to get an idea what yours will be worth.
