Mobile recycling could allow you to get free Skype calls

Consumers could be tempted to recycle their old mobile phone for cash to put towards a new Nokia handset, following the latest announcement from the manufacturer.

Nokia has revealed today (March 3rd) that it has launched a new Skype application for a range of its mobile phones running the latest version of Symbian.

Users will be given the ability to make and receive free Skype-to-Skype calls and devices' phone books will be imported directly into the app.

Russ Shaw, general manager for mobile at Skype said: "With Skype for Nokia smartphones, more than 200 million smartphone users worldwide will be able to take the Skype features they love with them on the move."

He added that by allowing consumers to access Skype more easily, millions of people will find it simpler to keep in contact with the people that are important to them "without worrying about the cost, distance or whether they are away from a computer".

Nokia recently announced its new naming conventions which will see four series of handsets become available to customers - the C, X, E and N series - each with its own area of speciality.
