'Better phones behind increased web use'
5 October 2009 — 5:00 PM
Consumers recycling mobile phones for high-spec handsets could be the reason behind why the wireless web is proving so successful.
A spokesman for Mobile Choice, a magazine that offers news and reviews on the latest developments in the sector, explained that more people are looking at devices with internet-focused features.
Conrad Longmore, editor of the publication, said for the first time since the technology emerged, manufacturers have finally achieved a way of giving consumers the surfing experience they require.
"More handsets than ever before come with large screens, high-speed data and capable browsers," he added. "In other words, it is much easier and more fun to access the web from a phone than it was a couple of years ago."
Mr Longmore's comments follow a recent report from Nielsen which revealed mobile web use had increased by 34 per cent in July 2009 when compared to the same month last year.
