Mobile recycling could allow companies to make an upgrade

Mobile reycling could help businesses stay up to date.

The Mobile Phone Security Industry Association is planning to promote the use of mobile phones within the security industry.

In 2009 alone 1.2 billion phones were sold and four billion are in use worldwide, with some potentially offering applications to be used as authentication and unlocking devices in the security industry, Gartner suggests.

Sebastian Zabala, a security expert and senior project manager for the UK and Sweden at Panda Security, said: "I think most companies have already adopted smartphones and are using them."

He added it is possible to have more control of a smartphone at the moment than it is to use a regular desktop.

Businesses looking to get a new range of smartphones may wish to consider selling old mobile phones with Envirofone for cash to put towards new devices.

Symbian's share of the mobile market has been negatively impacted by competitive pressure from its competitors, such as Research In Motion and Apple, suggests Gartner.
