Is BlackBerry Torch worth recycling your old mobile for?

People looking to recycle mobile phone handsets may want to consider replacing their old devices with the latest product from BlackBerry manufacturer Research In Motion.

The company has unveiled the Blackberry Torch 9800, one of its "best bets", according to a review written by the New Delhi Chronicle, which described it as a "trendy smartphone".

"After a very, very long time the company seems to have launched a mobile handset that can make other telecom giants sit up and take notice," stated the news provider.

The newspaper stated the BlackBerry Torch 9800's features, including a combination of a touch-screen and qwerty keyboard, make it "equal, if not better than the iPhone 4".

Mobile recycling was recently given a boost by retailer Sainsbury's, which launched an initiative aimed at persuading customers to recycle their old chargers.

The supermarket chain wants to collect and recycle approximately 150,000 mobile phone plugs over the next four weeks.
