Worth buying?

Most people who own an Apple iPhone have said they would recommend a purchase of the handset, research has found.

A survey by mobile advertising agency AdMob found that 91 per cent of people who use the iPhone would encourage others to join them.

The news may encourage consumers to consider mobile recycling to receive money to put towards an upgrade to one of the handsets.

Eighty-eight per cent of iPod touch users would recommend the device, compared to 84 per cent of Android users and 69 per cent of webOS users.

The findings also revealed the uptake of people using the technology, with iPod touch owners downloading an average of 12 applications a month - 37 per cent more than iPhone and Android users who were reported to download around nine new apps in the same period.

Apple's iPhone is available in the UK on Vodafone, Tesco, O2 and Orange.
