Recycle used phone for iPhone printing joy

Recycling a mobile phone in order to raise the funds to buy an Apple iPhone may just have become an even more attractive proposition.

This is because the manufacturer has announced it is launching a beta version of its highly-practical AirPrint tool.

AirPrint allows users of an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to send documents to a nearby printer wirelessly, meaning the hassle of attaching various components is taken away.

The technology allows the models to automatically locate printers in the vicinity and works with text, photographs and graphics.

Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice-president of world product marketing, says: "AirPrint is Apple's powerful new printing architecture that matches the simplicity of iOS - no set up, no configuration, no printer drivers and no software to download."

Apple released the latest generation of the iPhone, iPhone 4, in June and is now selling the revolutionary handsets in more than a dozen countries.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If printing from your phone sounds handy, why not upgrade? Smartphone technology is constantly improving and I'm sure there’ll be another great tool round the corner. Recycle your handset and you could even earn yourself some cash!"
