GreenHeart Concept Phone Spotted in Copenhagen
September 29th, 2008 by Ariel Schwartz
GoodCleanTech reports that the Sony Ericsson Greenheart Concept phone was spotted at a Sony event last week in Copenhagen. The phone will be an amalgam of “green” factors, including a bio-plastic shell, HTML-based manuals, a recycled plastic keypad and an energy-efficient charger that uses only 3.5 mW of power during standby.
In comparison, most efficient cell-phone chargers use 30 mW on standby.
The Greenheart concept was announced last week along with a new environmental warranty for Sony Ericsson phones. With the warranty, the phones can be recycled anywhere in the world if brought to designated drop-off areas. Currently, there are over 500 drop-off areas, and Sony plans to add more in the future.
