Hungry consumers ordering via mobile phones

Selling used mobile phones to upgrade to a smartphone could be ideal for those consumers who like to order their takeaways online.

Takeaway website Just-Eat.co.uk has studied the ways in which people order their food and found the Apple iPhone accounts for ten times more traffic than the BlackBerry browser, the Symbian Operating System or the Android system.

Of the top methods used to access the website - not including through a Mac or PC - the iPhone accounted for 58.7 per cent of orders.

People who feel their old mobile phones are leaving them behind when it comes to technology may want to recycle their used devices so they can purchase a new smartphone.

The BlackBerry stands in sixth place for the most-used method with 5.04 per cent of the vote, with Samsung in tenth place with 0.65 per cent of orders.

Commenting on the findings, David Buttress, managing director of Just-Eat.co.uk, said: "More than 40,000 people access our website every month using the iPhone web browser and we fully expect the iPad to exceed this after launching at the end of this month."

iPhones are increasingly being bought by businesses because they are popular with employees, Smartphone Daily recently reported.
