Solar Mobile Phones Already in China

Being the huge solar-power advocate that I am, I welcome the idea of any mobile solar device. There's an overwhelming amount of sunlight to go around, at least here in California, where there's already plenty of eco-friendly solar power integration. Now according to Unwired View, China's HTW Electronics claims to have developed the S116 solar Mobile Phone which was announced last week at CeBit, although no working prototype was on-hand to confirm their claims.


It sounds great on paper though, featuring a 1.3 megapixel camera, memory card slot, QVGA display, and a slim design that resembles a trendy Motorola RAZR. Apparently, a 40-minute sunlight charge equals to 20-25 minutes of talk time, which means you can place that cell phone on your car's dashboard to recharge it while you drive to work every morning. Wouldn't that be strange? I hope they also include a regular electrical charger, since we'll need it as a backup for nights and cloudy days.


 HTW Electronics says the phone will be available in China next month. Can't wait for this technology to come to the U.S. What do you think about solar mobile phones?
