Android upgrade could encourage mobile recycling
28 October 2009 — 9:58 AM
Those who have received money for old mobile phones have been given another reason to use it to fund an Android-powered handset this week.
It was announced by developers that a 2.0 version of the operating system (OS) was now available that provides increased support for a number of systems that will make gaming and music more accessible.
The official blog for the product explained this would include better synchronisation facilities, Bluetooth connectivity and contact management, as well as changes to peer-to-peer functionality.
Commenting on the launch of the new OS, GigaOM's Colin Gibbs said the buzz about the software was now gaining momentum and this could only increase if it was applied to the right devices.
"There's no question that Apple currently dominates the smartphone space but I think there's ample room for growth in the superphone era," he added.
Current devices that support Android include the HTC Hero, Samsung Galaxy and Motorola DEXT.
