Wi-Fi compatible handsets 'on the increase'
24 March 2010 — 11:53 AM
Mobile recycling could be one option worth considering for consumers who would like to make use of internet on their phone.
According to a survey by In-Stat more than a quarter of respondents said they had used their smartphone to access Wi-Fi hotspots.
The trend could be set to spread to a greater number of people as the group expects 180 million Wi-Fi compatible handsets to be shipped this year.
Natasha Stokes, editor of Mobile Choice, said: "[Wi-Fi] is an extremely useful feature that would allow you to, for example, browse the net, check email, make VoIP calls and download apps without using the 3G network."
She explained a rising number of handsets are using Wi-Fi because mobile internet usage is on the increase.
Recent research from Gartner found that worldwide mobile phone sales to end-users went up eight per cent in the final three months of 2009.
