Keep up with emails easily after selling used phone

Mobile users who sell a used phone and invest in an Android-powered device could take advantage of new technology from Google that allows people with a Gmail account to easily keep up to date with messages.

The search engine has updated its app for the email service, so that consumers are no longer reliant on Android updates, explains Simon Arscott and Paul Westbrook, of the Gmail for Android team, writing the Google Mobile Blog.

At this stage, early improvements have been made to the reply service and access to quoted text within messages.

But it likely that further upgrades are to come and could revolutionise the email experience on offer.

The authors explain how, when users enter their account, their most important messages will be stuck across the top of the screen, making them readily available at all times.

Google this week announced via its blog that its Google Earth technology is now offering iPhone owners the chance to explore under the world's oceans and seas.

Julie Snape, head of marketing at Envirofone, says: "There's more and more you can do with smartphones these days. If the technology appeals to you, why not upgrade? You could even recycle your old handset for cash."
