Android devices now offer consumers a choice of some 100,000 apps

People may wish to recycle a mobile phone and switch to an Android-powered device, after it was revealed the operating system now offers users 100,000 apps.

Developers of Android tools made the announcement of the landmark figure via their Twitter page, emphasising the choice available to those who own a phone with the platform.

It even raises the possibility that Android may soon be in a position to challenge the iPhone's AppStore, while its status as more advanced than the app offerings from the likes of Nokia and BlackBerry remains strong.

Among the most popular models that use Android are the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S.

In addition to leading smartphones, a host of the latest tablet devices run on the operating system, meaning the number of individuals enjoying the apps could be even greater than some people realise.

HTC recently launched the newest mobile in its range, the Desire HD, which is Android based.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: “Nowadays there really is an app for everything. If you’d like to upgrade your phone, you could try trading in your old handset for cash.”
