It wasn't too long ago when the first solar-powered cell phones were released commercially, but within the span of just a few months, there has been quite a healthy number of solar phone releases such as those from popular corporations LG and Sharp. Making a beeline for our solar power-loving hearts is Samsung's first solar phone, the E1107 or the Samsung Crest Solar. "With Samsung's cutting edge technology and consumer-oriented strategy, I believe the Crest Solar will be the perfect fit for anyone in any market - not only because it is solar powered, but because it has features that were designed to appeal to various cultures," says Executive Vice President JK Shin, head of the Mobile Communication Division at Samsung Electronics.
Precise specs of the solar panel weren't divulged, but Samsung claims an hour's worth of sun exposure is enough for 5 to 10 minutes of talk time. More than providing a source of alternative energy source when needed, the Crest Solar was specifically made for rural areas where they may be faulty (or even completely absent) electrical supply. Other features include a powerful torch light (commonly seen in various gadgets conceptualized for the developing world), FM radio and games. A couple of interesting specs are the Mobile Tracker which sends out messages in case of an emergency and a fake call feature which, Samsung says, can help users "escape unsafe situations," but would probably be used to get out of personal sticky situations as well. The Samsung Crest Solar will be available this June in India, Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia and Latin America.
