Green Phone Nokia App Maximizes Cell Phone Battery Life

There are very few experiences we all have in common, but I can say with relative confidence that most of us have been caught with dying cell phones at inopportune times. A new application for Nokia phones called Green Phone attempts to remedy this problem by maximizing battery life through regulation of backlighting, WLAN, Bluetooth, and charger power consumption.

Green Phone is a finalist in Nokia’s Calling All Innovators contest, which will award up to $150,000 to developers that generate cell phone applications to “improve the quality of life on the planet.” More information on the Green Phone application is available in this video from Nokia:
