Selling used phone could lead people to mobile internet

With the mobile internet market growing all the time, selling a used phone and investing in one that offers web access may be one way to keep up with the times.

The Official YouTube blog notes a recent report by Morgan Stanley that suggested within five years a higher number of people will browse the net via a mobile device than desktop PCs.

Meanwhile, the blog reveals some 100 million YouTube video playbacks are enjoyed each day by mobile users.

This figure is similar to the amount of consumers watching YouTube videos online as recently as 2006.

"Today, more than ever, we know that you want to be able to find and access your favourite videos wherever you are," the blog states.

One way to do this could be to sell an old mobile and splash out on a new one with simple and reliable connection to the internet, perhaps using the proceeds.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says "We all enjoy watching a comedy clip or the latest pop video and smartphones are a great way to do this on the go. One of the easiest ways to get your hands on a new handset is to trade in your old phone for cash – it could cover the cost of a new smartphone!"

Among the recent smartphone releases that may tempt users are the iPhone 4, Nokia N8 and HTC Wildfire.
