Smartphone handsets could make mobile recycling worthwhile
15 March 2010 — 2:14 PM
Consumers could soon be tempted to upgrade to the latest in handset technology, following an announcement from Vodafone.
Mobile recycling might provide cash to put towards a purchase of a new smartphone such as the HTC Desire, HTC Legend or Google Nexus One.
All three are expected to be made available from the mobile network next month although it is not yet clear what the tariff details are.
Reports suggest that customers can expect to pay between £30 and £35 per month.
The HTC Desire boasts a 3.7-inch screen, in comparison with the Legend's 3.2-inch display, a five-megapixel camera and a 1-Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, which should ensure fast internet browsing.
Orange and 3UK have said they will also be stocking the Desire from next month.
Website 3G.co.uk recently suggested that the HTC Desire is "virtually the same smartphone as the Google Nexus One and features the Android Eclair operating system and HTC Sense".
