Travellers may love the new applications

One of the latest devices available to consumers recycling mobile phones can now be used as a travel companion, it has emerged.

This is because a new downloadable application has been launched that can be accessed via Vodafone's 360 Apps Shop that serves up data from a well-known series of publications.

Rough Guide has made 50 of its destination resources available to the network in the form of software widgets that can be picked up for 49p on the newly-launched Samsung H1.

It is expected that further 150 guides will soon be added to the catalogue and Nokia's range of Symbian smartphones will also be added to the list of compatible models soon.

Tom Hall, head of digital licensing at the publication group, said: "This is an exciting opportunity to bring trusted Rough Guide content to mobile consumers via a brand new app store."

Vodafone launched the Samsung H1 on its network on November 13th.
