Mobile recycling an option to consider to get an iPhone?

Selling an old mobile phone might soon be an option worth considering for consumers hoping to keep up to date with the latest developments in mobile phone technology.

Details of a new iPhone model were published this week by gadget website Gizmodo after the device was lost by an Apple engineer.

It suggested the handset is three grams heavier than the iPhone 3GS, with a battery that is 16 per cent larger.

Conrad Longmore, editor at Mobile Gazette, said: "All the evidence is that this 'lost and found' iPhone is the real deal. It is very unusual to get a real glimpse of what Apple has planned."

He added it has been reported that the screen appears to have a higher resolution than previous iPhones, a camera flash and front-facing video calling camera.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, said: "Smartphones are constantly improving and becoming more and more impressive. What better way to keep up-to-date with the latest in mobile technology than by selling your old handset for cash?"

According to financial results released by Apple, it sold 8.75 million iPhones in the second quarter of 2010.
