Recycling mobile may be good idea for UK travellers

People planning a holiday in the UK this summer may be wise to recycle their used phones and instead splash out on an iPhone or iPad, for which a special travel app has been launched.

Cool Places offers users of the mobile devices the chance to view a mini-guide on a large range of destinations around the UK.

These vary from coastal resorts such as St Ives and Padstow to the ancient cities of York, Bath and Oxford.

Costing £1.19 each, the travel apps may be more affordable to many than books on each of the spots they intend to visit.

"There is no doubt books are going digital over the next decade and travel books are first in line as they can offer a genuine extra dimension for travellers," explains co-founder Mark Ellingham.

Apple has recently released sales figures for each of the handsets, suggesting it sold 1.7 million iPhone 4s within three days of its release last month and three million iPads in less than three months.
