MobileXpression M:Panel Mobile Survey

o2 XDA OrbitHere's an interesting one. Got a Windows Mobile or a Symbian OS Smartphone, and fancy making a few quid? This could be worth a look.

Survey firm MobileXpression are prepared to pay you for some basic information about the way you use your phone. They're asking you to install a special piece of software onto your smartphone, and this software collates information on the features you use on your phone.

They'll pay you £15 for signing up, and a £5 a month to keep the software on your phone. They're prepared to offer you this cash as the data they gather is extremely valuable to network operators and phone manufacturers.

Initially a little worried about installing a piece of legitimate "spyware", we were at first sceptical, but we're now giving Mobile Panel a go, to see how it works, and if it's a nice way of making a few bob without handing over too much data to a third-party.

If you're interested in trying it out, you can sign up via this link, or from their marketing image we've added below.
