Now could be a great time to sell your old mobiles and update to a top of the range new Motorola handset.
Motorola has a trinity of new phones on offer to the gadget-worshipper in the coming months, including the Motorola Clutch, Theory & i412 for Boost Mobile. Going against the current market trends, these latest efforts from the chaps at Motorola are actually dumbphones, for want of a more suitable term, you won't for example find any Android lurking on them, unlike the Motorola Droid X2, Atrix 4G and the other one of many Motorola smartphones. These handsets are more entry-level and affordable, rather than high end and bank-busting.
First on the list is the Motorola Clutch +1475 which is the successor to the original Clutch. It packs a full QWERTY display and a BlackBerry style candy bar shell. It has GPS, Bluetooth, push-to-talk, threaded SMS, email, web and a VGA camera.
The Theory does one better than the Clutch as it has a slightly better 1.3-megapixel camera, alas it lacks push-to-talk.
Last on the list is the i412 which is the "simplest" of the bunch. It's a flip phone with iTap, a predictive text mode, VGA camera, web access, GPS, Bluetooth, and has push-to-talk over Sprint's iDEN network.
If you are interested in selling your old mobile and upgrading to a snazzy new Motorola, make sure you have a bash at mobile phone recycling. More and more gadget-worshippers are trading in old phones to mobile recyclers so as to fund their gadget habit. All of us must have an old handset lying around feeling sorry for itself, these old phones are often in perfect working order, they just look a bit 'Time Team' that's all. Don't let them end up in landfill, find them a new home, and find yourself with some extra cash!
