It's happened to the best of us - you're out and about and suddenly realize that your phone is about to die. We all love rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, but they're not exactly an easy power source to replace while on-the-go.

That's where the Olice FvrOn mobile phone comes in. Available only in India (for now), it claims to be the country's first dual-powered cell phone. That means that while it does come with a standard rechargeable battery, it can also be powered via a standard AAA battery.

The device also has a built-in FM tuner, a 1.5-inch color display, and a packed-in stereo headset.

Well, it's certainly not an iPhone (you'd need 50 C batteries to charge that guy), but it is a novel idea for the minimalistic phone user. And it's nice to see that the Energizer bunny is still relevant to some capacity.
