Trading in used mobile phones for a Google Android-enabled handset may be a more tempting idea in the future, if one expert's comments are to be believed.

A spokeswoman for Mobile Choice, a magazine that follows the latest developments and technology in the sector, said the operating system has the potential to dethrone many of its rivals.

Natasha Stokes, editor of the publication, noted that chief among these competitors would be the Apple iPhone 3G S.

"Personally, I think that with HTC's Android portfolio improving with each phone, their next Android smartphone could well be a serious contender to the iPhone," she added.

Ms Stokes also touched upon O2's upcoming smartphone, the Palm Pre, explaining its status as a device that can pull together various social and communicative facilities was something which was interesting.

Superbrands recently announced the iPhone had come top of the 2009/2010 CoolBrand listings.
