Online gamblers are likely to be among those who are most enthusiastic about selling mobile phones in order to upgrade to superior devices.
Jason Foley-Train, head of communications for the Remote Gambling Association, told how mobile betting is an area that is currently experiencing significant growth.
The release of hi-tech smartphones is driving this trend, with those who have access to the latest technology perhaps in the best position to enjoy online gambling portals.
"It's being led by the new generation of phones – they're offering a lot more opportunity to put on particular products and obviously more innovative and technologically-advanced products," Mr Foley-Train stated.
He added that the activities most popular with online users include poker, the lottery and betting.
One of the most popular brands to switch to could now be HTC, after Canalys research recently found that the company became the number one mobile provider in the US during the third quarter of 2011.
