New Android and Apple technology may lead to people recycling mobiles

An upgrade to Android, iPhone and iPad devices may result in many people recycling their mobile phone and switching to one of the latest models.

Google has announced via its Mobile Blog that its Docs Viewer technology is now able to support PDFs, as well as .doc and .ppt files that have been uploaded on to a handset.

This means people will not only have instant access to vital documents and pages, they will also benefit from easier navigation as Google allows them to zoom in or out.

Users are urged by the blog to try the feature out by going to and taking a closer look at a previously uploaded file.

Such ability on Android phones as well as the leading Apple devices may well prove to be particularly useful for those who rely on their mobile for work.

Apple this week announced its new iPhone 4 has recorded sales figures of more than 1.7 million within three days on the market.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "There is a huge demand for smartphones due to the popularity of mobile web browsing. One of the most cost effective ways of getting your hands on a new iPhone or iPad is to trade in your old phone for cash."
