Has Wi-Fi changed your mobile phone usage for life?

25 March 2010 — 5:35 PM

If you have not considered selling an old mobile phone to upgrade to one that has Wi-Fi then you could be missing out.

According to the Wi-Fi Alliance, mobile phones backed by Wi-Fi enable a high-performance experience to be enjoyed.

Whether customers have the BlackBerry Curve 8900 or the Nokia E71 - both with Wi-Fi - it appears that devices which contain the technology are flying off the shelves.

"The phenomenal growth of handsets offering Wi-Fi is no surprise," said chief executive of the Wi-Fi Alliance Edgar Figueroa.

Such mobile phones offer bandwidth increases, coverage benefits and are now widely available.

As such, more people who recycle mobile phones may decide to use the cash raised to put towards a contract for a Wi-Fi handset.

Other mobile phones that are Wi-Fi enabled include the Sony Ericsson Aino and the HTC Hero.

A recent report by ABI Research stated that by 2014, 90 per cent of smartphones will have Wi-Fi.
