Could roll out of Apple iPad trigger worldwide mobile recycling?

The release of the Apple iPad in a further nine countries on Friday (July 23rd) may leave some consumers wondering whether a surge in mobile recycling is imminent.

Apple has confirmed Belgium, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Singapore, New Zealand, Austria, Ireland, Netherlands and Mexico will all receive stocks of the revolutionary device.

An influx of iPads on to the market may lead many people to decide to recycle their used phones and instead splash out on one of the new models.

The handset offers users the chance to download and enjoy apps and content "in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before", according to the manufacturer.

At 13.4mm thin and with a weight of 0.68kg, the iPad may be ideal for those who like to travel light.

Last month, Apple released the iPhone 4 in five countries and recorded sales figures of 1.7 million in the first three days of trading.
