Solar-Powered Android Smartphone Coming?
 
Buy ZTE from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

It's a long Summer day, and you have a whole bunch of errands to take care of. While you're out and about you use the hell out of your smartphone. You use it to compare prices on stuff at the mall, navigate your way across the city, and keep yourself amused while your girlfriend is trying on clothes. Somewhere between the shoe store and the hardware shop your phone dies, and you're left to spend the rest of your day out of touch with the world.

Few things are more annoying than having your mobile die on you halfway through the day. That's why Chinese mobile manufacturer ZTE's new solar-powered Android smartphone is going to be huge. They're planning to launch this new mobile device in the second quarter of 2010. Like ZTE's previous solar-powered model, the Coral 200 Solar, this new device will be able to charge thanks to its rear-mounted solar panels.

We know nothing else about this phone as of yet. I think it's likely to be a smartphone and not a vanilla mobile phone because ZTE has decided to go with Android for the OS. It's possible it could be a normal mobile, but the idea of a solar-powered smartphone is too cool not to happen someday. ZTE's current solar panels are able to charge the phone for 15 minutes of call time for every hour in the sun.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
