New Palm store could encourage mobile recycling

17 December 2008 — 5:16 PM

Those recycling old mobiles to buy a new Palm model have been given access to a store from which they can download software.

It is reported that the manufacture recently launched its own online facility where users of its mobile phones can log on and gain access to some of the latest features.

Trusted Reviews said this week there are inevitable comparisons to the App Store, which offers the same services for users of the Apple iPhone 3G, but said the move could put the company back on top.

"Palm was once a truly innovative company with top notch handsets and for the good of the smartphone sector we'd hope it can become one once again," the site concludes.

The Palm Software Store allows visitors to browse and download more than 5,000 applications for both business and leisure activities and according to the company around 1,000 of these are available for free.
