At the CHITEC 2007 trade-show that took place in China over the weekend Chinese HTW (Hi-Tech Wealth) showed a mobile phone that is charged by a solar panel. Who said China is not into saving our planet?

The HTW S116 actually debuted at the CeBit 2007 in March. The solar powered mobile phone is already selling in China for about $520. No more recharging - as long as you are out in the sun of course and carry your phone outside of your pockets. The HTW S116 clamshell style phone measures 110x52x18.5mm and features a 2.2 inch QVGA color display, MP3 player, 1.3MP camera and USB.

The solar panel gives the S116 actually a very cool look. Let's hope the company is bringing this phone to markets outside of China.
More details on the HTW site (Chinese).
