Square mobile phones liked by younger Britons

Younger Britons may decide to sell their used mobile phones in order to upgrade to a newer - and potentially square - model.

A Relaxnews report in the Independent said younger generations are thought by mobile phone makers to want compact designs they can easily fit into their pockets.

Nokia's 7705 Twist and the Xperia X10 Mini Pro from Sony Ericsson are just two of the models to have been released in square form.

People fed-up with their chunky, old devices may want to sell their used phones so they can obtain some money to put towards a newer handset.

"The square devices are mostly in the low to mid-range price bracket and seem to be targeted at consumers aged 15 to 35," the report stated.

Microsoft's Kin One has a nearly-square touchscreen and rounded casing which is described as "palm-friendly."

The Kin One features a five-megapixel camera with a LumiLed flash.
