Apple iPhone could make great last-minute Christmas gift for mobile recycler
22 December 2010 — 3:53 PM
Britons still stuck on what to buy a loved one for Christmas could opt for an Apple iPhone, perhaps triggering the recycling of the recipient's current mobile.
Those that follow such a ploy will be able to add the TomTom app to the model – after the tool was named by the Daily Telegraph as the perfect present.
Offering users live traffic updates, navigation information and route instructions, the app retails at £39.99, which could be just in budget once the handset has been secured.
Chris Knapman, writing for the newspaper, states: "The iPhone has many uses besides actually making calls. It is a ... get-out-of-jail-free card for those who have been too late, lazy or simply snowed in to do their Christmas shopping."
And with TomTom, it is one of the most up-to-date mapping services around, he adds.
Apple released the iPhone 4 in June and news and reviews site T3 recently speculated the next model could be on its way in 2011.
Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "The technology available on iPhones make them extremely useful. If you’d like to get the latest model, why not trade-in your old phone for cash?"
