Thousands of Britons may find they have to search for a new mobile phone after enjoying a Christmas break this year.<br/><br/>Research by Credant Technologies reveals 5,100 handsets have been lost during flights and handed in at 15 British airports so far this year.<br/><br/>But with four million individuals set to jet off over the festive season, this figure is likely to be just the tip of the iceberg.<br/><br/>As such, it may be important to have a mobile trade-in plan in place prior to a break, with some shrewd travellers perhaps choosing to sell their device before departure to avoid any unwanted loss.<br/><br/>And it is not only the value of the phone that people will suffer from missing out on, explains Sean Glynn, vice-president at the organisation.<br/><br/>"What is much more concerning are the copious volumes of sensitive data these devices contain – often unsecured and easily accessed," he states.<br/><br/>One of the models that may interest those who need to buy a new mobile after Christmas is the Google Nexus S, which was announced in recent weeks and is set to be released shortly.<br/><br/>Posted by Samantha Green <img alt="ADNFCR-2155-ID-800304669-ADNFCR" src="http://feeds.directnews.co.uk/feedtrack/justcopyright.gif?feedid=2155&itemid=800304669" /><br /><br /><script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="http://feeds.directnews.co.uk/client_includes/bookmarking/bookmarks.js"> </script>
