The auction reseller collected the results from its Instant Service, which allows users to swap their old hardware devices for cash. Interestingly, and perhaps not surprisingly, eBay found that 97.6% of tablets being traded in were iPad 1 or iPad 2 tablets.

The overbearing opinion is that these are users preparing to gather the funding for an iPad 3, although it is also thought that iPad 1 shortages on launch meant that some users only had their tablets for a matter of months before the launch of the iPad 2.

Apple looks likely to launch the iPad 3 in San Francisco on March 7.
