New Sony Ericsson phone may be worth recycling mobile for

11 November 2010 — 12:00 PM

The new phone is thought to be a follow-up to the Xperia X10

Owners of used phones may be persuaded to recycle their mobiles for money when they see leaked pictures of a new device from Sony Ericsson.

Asavin Wattanajantra, writing for CNET UK, believes the smartphone, which would be a successor to the Xperia X10 running on Android 2.3, would put the brand "back in the game" when it comes to the latest mobile technology.

He says the handset – thought to be called the Anzu – may just be what the firm is looking for in order to re-establish its "golden touch".

"If the phone is launched alongside the upcoming PlayStation phone, Sony Ericsson may be onto a winner," explains the author.

Mr Wattanajantra is of course referring to Sony Ericsson's other major news in recent weeks – the potential release of a PlayStation-themed mobile.

Writing previously on the topic, he said the model looks like the PSP Pro and should be available at some point in 2011.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "Sony Ericsson have two incredibly important handset releases coming up. If you fancy an Anzu or the PlayStation-themed mobile why not trade-in your old phone? You could make some extra cash."
