The staggering difference a phone makes

Computers, phones, televisions; each amazing technology is evolving at a speed much greater than you would find on any UK motorway. At Mazuma Mobile, we believe it's important to ensure we don't take such things for granted, when many places in the world are far from the stage that us Brits are at. If you think of your local high street or shopping complex, it's…

The evolution of the mobile

The mobile phone is an invention that first hit the UK market in 1985. However, the handset that enthralled many people back then is a far cry from the amazing handheld technology that we see today. Unbelievably, the first mobile phones were the size of a briefcase and some cost over £2000. Back then, mobile phones were seen as symbolic of wealth, fashion and status,…

A recipe for disaster

Take copper, steel, aluminium, plastic and precious metals; add lead, a sprinkling of deadly cadmium, a dash of poisonous barium, rhodium and beryllium, and mix. Leave to stand for a couple of years, and throw away. Take one atmosphere, and add greenhouse gases for extra heat. Allow poisonous substances to leak into the ground and infect the water system.

Many often take advantage of…

AMOLED Screens to Revolutionise the Mobile Market

AMOLED technology is here to stay, so all the technical experts tell us, but what is AMOLED technology and what's so special about it? AMOLED is an acronym that stands for the incredibly technical sounding Active Matrix Organic Light-Emitting Diode. Well, the active matrix is a rather grand way to say that the screen has layers. We have all become relatively used to the term…

Free Mobile Phone Recycling

It is thought that each Christmas an estimated 40-50% of the British population receives an electronic device in the form of an MP3 player, iPod, a new computer or some sort of games console as a Christmas present. Some even receive them for achieving high marks in a particular exam or just general good behaviour. This of course has huge repercussions for the recycling industry…
