Expert highlights latest phones as "future proof"
22 May 2009 — 2:00 PM
Some of the latest phones are so well designed that they will still be relevant in a year's time, according to one expert.
A spokesman for Stuff.tv - an online resource that provides news, reviews and comment on the latest developments in the world of gadgets and mobiles - said a number of "future-proof" devices are now available.
One particular model singled out for praise was the iPhone 3G, as it is not only equipped with the latest technology, but can also be kept ahead of the curve with new software.
"Updates seem to be the big thing at the moment, so it's kind of like getting a new phone every six months any way when [Apple] updates [the operating system] because you're adding new features," the spokesman explained.
It is widely rumoured that the manufacturer is set to announce a revised version of the iPhone next month - which could prompt many to consider mobile recycling.
