Samsungs new solar powered mobile phone for £5

Samsung E1107

Well O2 didn’t include this mobile phone in their eco-rating chart and OK, it’s not touchscreen and maybe there’s not many bells and whistles on it, but what a good back up phone, it could be?  At present, it only comes in black and weighs in at 72gms.

You can store up to 200 numbers on its 16MB onboard memory, it has some games, an organizer, you can SMS with it, a calendar, there’s a speakerphone and stopwatch feature and it has a vibration mode when needed.

But the best bit for me… it has a Li-Ion standard battery of 1000 mAh which can help the support a talk time of 10 h 30 min and has a whopping great 830 hours standby time.

That means you could charge it once a month, now is that a low carbon footprint…
