HTC mobiles also run on the Android platform

Those who sell a mobile phone over the coming weeks and months will have the chance to replace it with the newest Android model, the Nexus S.

Andy Rubin, vice-president of engineering and author of the Google Mobile Blog, says the device will be available on the search engine's latest Android operating system – Gingerbread.

Google worked with Samsung in order to create the handset, which is the first to run on the platform.

Mr Rubin promises what he labels a "pure Google" experience with the phone, which he says includes access to all the best Android apps and features, as well as the company's top services.

Among the benefits of signing up to a deal to use the device is its provision of a four-inch contour display – crafted to fit comfortably into a person's hand.

Some of the brands to offer mobiles that run on the Android system include HTC and LG.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "Many companies are bringing out new mobile phone models in the run-up to Christmas. If you’d like to upgrade your phone, why not trade-in your old handset? You could even make some cash."
