Motorola mobile goes green with the Citrus

Citrus_Motorola eco friendly mobile

This is an entry-level mobile phone with an environmentally friendly hear. Motorola has gone green in their production of the Citrus mobile phone, which is sweet, very sweet.  This small touchscreen smartphone sports the Android 2.1 operating system.  The display uses TFT capacitive technology, and it allows you to fluid flick, swipe or pinch-to-zoom on this phone!

The body is made from 24% recycled plastic and carbon-free, PVC and BFR free too.  Our personal favorite, the packaging is 100% RECYCLED, well done Motorola.  When you think how many mobiles are shipped each year then this is a good thing.  And the user manual is made from 100% recycled paper and uses soy ink.

With a good sized 3 inch screen, on-screen QWERTY, it has seven home screens that you can tailor with your favourite shortcuts; apps; pre-loaded widgets such as sticky notes, messages, weather, and calendar and it has a 3MP camera with digital zoom if you need it.  The engine is good 528 MHz processing unit for a mobile in this price range and it comes with a 3 MP back camera.  The 102,4 MB internal storage, is basic but luckily it does come with a microSD, microSDHC memory slot to store photos and videos, which you can ramp up to 32GB, useful.

Full HTML Web browser it delivers a PC-like web browsing experience with quick access to Web apps and services such as Facebook; Google services such as Gmail, Google Talk, and YouTube.  For a basic mobile design, it does come with interesting features, which help to raise its profile.  Bluetooth (2.) is very useful and in there, it has GPS, NFC, and a Proximity sensor, as well as a compass and an Accelerometer.  The power behind all this is a 1150 mAH Li-ion battery, but Motorola reckons you will get 6 hours plus talk time and a very useful 300 hours stand by time.

Founded in 1928, Motorola gave us the first commercial mobile phone in the world, called the Dynatec in 1983.

And this is new it comes with BACKTRACK, a kind of touch panel on the back of the mobile that you can use to scroll through websites, e-mails, music and more without obstructing the display.
