Fashion-conscious consumers may want to sell old mobile phone
18 August 2010 — 12:00 PM
The Nokia X3 Touch and Type, unveiled by the company earlier this week, is a model that will appeal to "fashion-conscious" customers and may make many sell their old mobile phone in order to upgrade to it.
Ian, author of the Nokia Conversations blog, says the attractive handset will appeal to the most stylish users.
Perhaps the most innovative aspect of the phone, which is due to be released later this year, is its combination of traditional keys, included to allow rapid typing, with a modern touchscreen.
"Despite two sets of controls, though, the X3 Touch and Type is one of Nokia's thinnest devices: it's 9.6mm deep, 106mm tall, 48mm wide and weighs just 78g," explains Ian.
The design also makes room for dedicated music and messaging keys, allowing quick and easy access to some of the most popular features.
Another revolutionary smartphone due for upcoming release is the Nokia N8, which consumers may also wish to sell used phones in favour of buying.
Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "For all the fashionistas out there who are sick of their old, ugly handsets - trading in your phone for cash could be for you."
