You might find that as soon as you’ve got your hands on a new mobile phone, another one comes out that takes your fancy. Technology’s progressing so fast at present and as and when new devices come out, they often have innovative features.
Keeping up with the latest developments in the field can be tricky and it can require plenty of spending. This is where mobile phone recycling comes into its own. Rather than amassing lots of redundant handsets you no longer use, you can exchange them for cash – benefiting both your wallet and the planet.
Smartphones are in vogue
The most interesting developments in the mobile communications world at present seem to be in the realm of smartphones. There’s certainly no shortage of these products available for you to take advantage of these days.
According to PwC’s Global Entertainment & Media Outlook report, around 40 per cent of the money spent on accessing the web last year was spent on mobile internet usage. This is thanks to the rising popularity of smartphones, those behind the study suggested.
Meanwhile, this figure is on track to increase further to 46 per cent by 2016, the report claimed.
The smartphone appeal
Commenting on the popularity of these devices, PwC’s senior partner of Entertainment & Media Phil Stokes stated: “We in Europe have a legacy infrastructure and mobiles are generally the secondary device, but [even in the UK] we are increasingly seeing some people thinking their mobiles will do everything they need.” He added: “The simple fact is that smartphones really have caught the public desire. Access to the internet [on mobiles] is becoming a commodity like gas.”
Talking more generally about the entertainment market, the expert remarked: “There is an ongoing shift from offline to online, and from fixed to mobile.”
