Recycle mobile phone as Nokia N8 moves a step closer

Shipping of the Nokia N8 has started

Consumers across the country could be preparing to recycle their mobile phone for money and put the cash towards the new Nokia N8.

Those who intend to follow such a plan may wish to start moving now, as the Finnish brand has announced shipping of the handset is underway.

Jo Harlow, senior vice-president of smartphones at the firm, said: "The Nokia N8 has received the highest amount of consumer pre-orders in Nokia history and we are thrilled to start shipments of the N8, the first of Nokia's new Symbian smartphone range."

People who have placed a pre-order will be the first to get their hands on the model, but there could still be time to recycle a mobile and use the money to get near the front of the queue.

Nokia recently announced it intends to launch three more smartphones - the E7, C6 and C7 - over the coming months.

Jon Butler, creative brand manager at Envirofone, says: "If you're loyal to Nokia and want to buy one of its new smartphones, why not trade-in your old handset? You could put the cash you make towards the N8."
