Britons may be wise to recycle their mobile phones and put their funds towards purchasing one of the devices that runs on the new Windows Phone 7 operating system, if one expert is to be believed.

Tony Bradley, writing for PC World, says there are five factors that grab his attention and force him to admire the platform, despite his previous loyalty to the Apple iPhone.

The first of these is the wireless syncing on offer from Windows Phone 7 handsets, allowing people to update their apps and programs without having to plug in with a USB cable.

Secondly, Mr Bradley notes Facebook integration is a major plus, stating: "Windows Phone 7 ties in nicely with Facebook and provides the latest status updates and feed from the social network."

He goes on to explain the native Office apps, provision of high-quality cloud storage and the ability to connect to non-Microsoft computers are other benefits.

Among the models to run on the operating system is the HTC HD 7 and the HTC 7 Trophy.
