The DROID came out top of the chart

A technology website has updated a list that may be of particular interest to those recycling mobile phones.

PC World has revised its list of most desirable handsets and has placed the Motorola DROID - the first handset to boast Google's Android 2.0 operating system - at the top.

This means the Apple iPhone 3G S has been pushed into second place and the site noted some of the reasons behind the decision.

It explained that the DROID "impresses with a strong suite of web features and a stunning 3.7-inch display".

However, this was not the only Motorola phone that appeared in the listing, with the recently launched DEXT featuring alongside devices like the BlackBerry Bold 9700 and Tour 9630.

The Palm Pre, T-Mobile's G1 and myTouch 3G, as well as the HTC's Droid Eris were also singled out for inclusion on the chart.

Earlier this year, it emerged that both Vodafone and Orange will soon be stocking the Apple iPhone 3G S, ending O2's period of exclusivity for the smartphone.
