Nokia aims to get more women using mobiles

Females across the world may have an incentive to recycle any used phones they own if they are to benefit from a new Nokia scheme.

The Finnish manufacturer is aiming to help ladies who currently have a lack of quality mobile technology in their possession.

Ian, author of the latest Nokia Conversations blog, explains the mWomen programme will work to improve access to handsets for 150 million girls, mainly in poor areas.

Some of the advantages for females owning a high-quality mobile phone can be explained by recent research undertaken by mWomen, which showed 93 per cent feel safer with a device on them and 85 per cent noted an increase in independence.

The writer suggests females are currently less likely to own a mobile than their male counterparts.

Nokia phones are used by about a billion people across the world and the company recently outlined plans to connect the next billion.
