Mobile recycling could let consumers do more
10 May 2010 — 7:00 PM
Mobile recycling may an option for consumers wanting to make use of applications and games on their handset.
A new mobile phone could allow people to do more with their device and recently unveiled plans could see applications increasing in popularity.
The Wholesale Applications Community (WAC) scheme intends to offer application developers a service to build and publish apps via a platform that will be compatible with all devices.
Neil McHugh, co-founder of rightmobilephone.co.uk, said: "The Android market is establishing itself well, with thousands of apps already available and Android devices continue to sell in good numbers."
He added the new platform should ensure that it is easy to buy, download and install apps, because if it is too difficult, or too time consuming, then people will not bother.
Consumers downloaded some 2.4 billion applications from application stores last year and that number is expected to keep growing and peak in 2013 at just below seven billion, according to data from ABI Research.
