02 reveals importance of mobile phones

Mobile phone technology has been identified as one of the "major opportunity areas" for businesses, according to mobile phone network O2.

A new report, compiled by The Future Laboratory and released by the mobile provider, indicates that 65 per cent of UK businesses have singled out mobile phone technology as an area for growth, along with more sophisticated office technologies and social networking sites.

"It's really exciting to see the ways in which large organisations are harnessing changes in technology, workforce dynamics and social trends to not only survive but thrive in the future," said Ben Dowd, business sales director at O2.

The businesses taking part in the report identified technology and digital connectivity as key ways for firms to demonstrate greater transparency, as well as to increase flexibility to adapt to change.

O2 announced last month that it now offers a new range of mobile and broadband tariffs for iPhone, smartphone and standard mobile customers.

Those who are thinking about upgrading their current handset to a new one may wish to recycle their old mobile for cash.
