Owners reportedly dumping Samsung phones following Apple’s win in court

Samsung Smartphone Resale

Did Apple’s (AAPL) huge win over Samsung (005930) in court last week send Galaxy device owners heading for the hills? According to new data from cell phone resale company Gazelle.com, Samsung smartphones are being dumped by users following a California jury’s declaration that 21 of Samsung’s Android devices infringe on Apple patents — the company reports a 50% increase in the number of Samsung smartphones sold over the past few days. “Consumers seem to be jumping ship,” Gazelle.com’s chief gadget officer Anthony Scarsella told MarketWatch. “We expect this trend to continue, especially with this latest verdict.” Scarsella also noted that the increase in sales has prompted a 10% average price drop on used Samsung devices, and MarketWatch adds that several experts believe prices will continue to fall.
