Recycling old mobiles could lead to BlackBerry Curve 3G
10 August 2010 — 11:01 AM
Consumers looking to buy a new smartphone may want to recycle their old handset so they can purchase a new BlackBerry Curve 3G.
The device gives users "exceptional communications features".
President and co-chief executive officer at Research In Motion – the creators of BlackBerry – Mike Lazaridis said the handset is designed to encourage those who do now yet own a smartphone to make the leap.
"The new BlackBerry Curve 3G is a perfect choice for happily busy people who are looking for a user-friendly 3G smartphone to help them make the most of their day and to stay connected with their friends, family and co-workers," he added.
Users will be able to take advantage of the qwerty keyboard, which allows for fast-typing and the phone also has built in Wi-Fi and GPS.
Mobile phone network Three recently announced the BlackBerry Torch 9800 handset will be available to users.
Individuals could sell their old mobile and purchase one of the smartphones and then sign up to a pay-as-you-go scheme with Three.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If you want a user-friendly smartphone, this may be the handset for you. An easy way to get one is to trade-in your old mobile phone for cash."
