Could mobile recycling be driven by the release of the Sony Ericsson X10?
Consumers could soon be provided with another option to consider when trading in their old mobile phone, if suggestions are to be believed.
Mobile phone network Orange has hinted that it plans to release the Sony Ericsson X10 handset - which uses the Android operating system - to customers in the not too distant future.
There is no official confirmation from the operator, however, an Orange spokeperson said: "Although no official launch date or pricing details for this device have been made, as the number one destination for consumers wanting innovative multimedia devices, we continually look to range the latest high-end handsets on the market."
It is not currently clear if Orange will offer the phone exclusively to customers with other networks also interested, reports TechRadar.
Orange provided consumers with several potential reasons to trade in their used phone last year, selling handsets including the the HTC Hero, the Samsung i8910HD and iPhone 3GS.
The handset is expected to launch on the network in March or early April.
