One of the latest models from LG may be proving popular with those recycling mobile phones - as the manufacturer has commented on its popularity.

The South Korean firm said this week that it has now sold over one million units of its LG KM900 Arena device worldwide in the five months since its debut at the 2009 Mobile World Congress.

Available in silver, black, grey, baby pink and aqua blue, the company went on to say it was not just this handset that was proving popular.

LG explained it had seen an overall total of nearly five million units sold across Europe in the second quarter of 2009 - a 35 per cent increase on the same period last year.

Dr Skott Ahn, president and chief executive officer for the manufacturer, said it was clear that phones like the Arena were connecting with consumer desires.

"We will keep going out of our way to gain their insights and reflect their needs in our products," he added.

Earlier this month the LG KM900 Arena was unveiled as the European Imaging and Sound Association's Green Mobile Phone 2009/10.
