1st Generation iPad: Functional Lifespan Now That It Is Limited To iOS5?
I have a mint condition 16GB 1st generation iPad for sale. Since it cannot be upgraded to iOS6, I would like some advice regarding how long its useful life is likely to be. I don't want to mislead potential buyers nor sell something that will be dead in the water within the next year. I sold an iPhone 3GS last December and at that time I was satisfied that it would be suitable for at least a couple of years.
For example, I have a potential buyer who wants an iPad for her son (I don't know how old he is because I haven't had an opportunity to ask). I want to be sure that he will be able to use it for a reasonable period of time.

I would just give the buyer the heads up that they should download apps sooner rather than later. The buyer will likely NOT be an Apple fanatic or even a techie, so you may want to offer them a list of essential apps that are iPad 1 compatible. That way, they aren't freaking out that Infinity Blade XVII won't run on it.

How much are you going to ask? I have a 64G 1st generation in perfect condition and was thinking of putting it on e-bay. I also have an 8G iPod touch that's three years old and a locked (I guess) iPhone 4G. I'd like to sell them all because I rarely use them.
My first-generation iPad has many apps on it that run smoothly and update constantly. I'm sure with the right price point, this will remain a useful device for a few years.
Is there a market for an AT&T iPhone 4G?
