Selling old mobile phone could help users buy 'impressive Android handset'
8 June 2010 — 2:19 PM
Mobile phone recycling may be on the cards for people looking to pick up the new Dell Streak handset, which has Wi-Fi facilities.
The five-inch, Android-powered tablet-phone hybrid has been praised by one reviewer as being the best of its kind so far, thanks to its large and responsive screen and the ability to sync the device with a desktop computer.
Flora Graham, writing for Cnet.com, added although the handset uses an old version of Android, an update to the 2.2 version of the operating system has been earmarked for this year.
"Unlike the iPad, the Streak doesn't feel like a pack of A4 paper that's come to life. It feels more like a very, very big phone, in the same way that the HTC HD2 did," she explained.
O2 recently announced it is offering the Dell Streak on its network, which could encourage people to think about selling an old mobile phone.
