ZTE launches its own solar powered mobile phone


ZTE has launched its own solar powered mobile phone, the Coral-200 Solar.  What makes this annoucement more interesting is the target market for the device, specifically the emerging markets.  Given the lack of power outlets in many developing areas, inexpensive, solar powered devices makes complete sense.  in a recent announcement, the China-based ZTE has partnered with Jamaica’s Digicel Group to rollout the ‘world’s first mass-market solar cellphone to folks with limited or o access to the power grid.” 

It is expected to be available by June 2009.  More to come later..
