Mobile recycling could allow consumers to upgrade.

Consumers want to be able to access Wi-Fi through their mobile phone while on the move in a car.

Recent research from the mobile network 3UK found that 71 per cent of those surveyed believe portable Wi-Fi access in a car - with the potential for up to five passengers to connect to Wi-Fi devices - would prove useful for work and offer entertainment while travelling.

Charlotte Blanchard, director of products and services at 3UK, stated that most people can relate to the woes of long car trips and therefore the company is always looking at new products and services that allow customers to connect while on the move.

She said: "In car Wi-Fi does this, allowing mobile workers to check traffic information and email on route to a meeting, while kids can get on Facebook, watch TV online or download tracks to an iPod Touch while on a road trip."

People may wish to get their hands on a BlackBerry Bold 9700, which 3UK has recently revealed is available in white.
