Recycle mobile phone for 'cheap access to Android market'
12 November 2010 — 11:58 AM
Mobile consumers could recycle their used phones and instead seek an affordable switch to the Android market.
Such a possibility may become a reality with the Sony Ericsson Xperia X8, which Flora Graham, reviewing the handset for CNET UK, says is a reasonably priced option.
One of its key advantages is access to Android and the associated apps, features and technology this brings.
While the author admits there are superior devices available to customers that also run on the operating system, the Xperia X8 is one of the cheapest and easiest to use.
Ms Graham goes on to note several other benefits of the phone that could be of interest to those who have recently recycled a mobile, such as its "good-looking" design and loud external speaker.
Asavin Wattanajantra, writing for the same website, recently said a new model by Sony Ericsson – the Xperia X10 – would put the brand "back in the game" when it comes to the battle for smartphone supremacy.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If you've been thinking about upgrading to a smartphone, there's never been a better time than now! If you trade-in your old phone, you could even make some extra cash."
