New mobile phone technology 'takes giant strides'

8 December 2008 — 5:15 PM

The latest phones to hit the market are equipped with the kind of technology that in the past could only have been dreamed of, one expert has advised.

According to a spokesman for UK Web Media, convergence - where a number of technical services can be incorporated into one device - is an area where the mobile sector has flourished.

Karl Sharpe, mobile phone expert for the internet marketing specialists, said that in the past multi-media mobile devices had been out of reach to consumers, but added that this had changed dramatically.

"Mobile phones have really taken the giant strides in this direction," he said, adding that handheld games console providers had also made attempts to try and "cram everything into one device".

Mr Sharpe concluded that in addition to camera technology, mp3 players were about to be eclipsed with the Nokia N97, a handset which can hold up to 48GB of content - and could also tempt many to recycle used mobile phones.
