LG Viper mobile phone goes greener

LG VIPER eco mobile phone

The LG Viper mobile phone is absolutely going in the right direction.  This is a stylish, earth-friendly device with a pocket-friendly price.  Powered using Android 2.3, it has a dual core, 1.2 GHz processor driving it all.  LG has made the decision with this device that the LG Viper mobile phone should get down in the dirt and go greener.  Because the best bit about this phone is that at the heart of this phone’s design is its environmentally sustainable construction.

The Viper is a super-slim quality phone, with a diameter at 4.59 by 2.44 by 0.46 inches and weighing in at 5 ounces.  It is made out of plastic, with a slate-gray back it has a good strong solid feel to it and it fits easily in hand.   

The phone’s body shell uses 50% of post-consumer recycled materials; it is both RoHS and ULE Platinum Certified, so all the usual harmful suspects have been removed, polyvinyl chloride (PVC), brominated flame retardants (BFR), nickel, halogen, beryllium, and phthalates.  It comes packed in 87% of recycled packaging that doesn’t use any glues etc.  Making the box look pretty on the shelves is the use of Soy Inks and it comes with an energy efficient charger.

On the front of the ‘eco-friendly’ Viper, it has a princely 5-megapixel camera and HD video recorder, round the back is a 4.63-inch , a 800-by-480 LCD touch screen display.  When so many mobiles are moving towards a touchscreen, the Viper has a full QWERTY keyboard, it has about 1.5 GB of onboard memory and can take up to a 32GB MicroSD card as well.  If you like your music or radio, it has a 3.5mm headphone jack, and a pinhole microphone to record with.  And for those who want to be quick about buying stuff, it has Google Wallet (NFC) technology installed, so you can just ‘tap & pay’ and it weighs in at just 5 ounces…nice
