A few days ago, we informed you that Sony Ericsson
was about to showcase its first commercial eco-friendly products. And so it happened! The company announced its environment-cautious C901 GreenHeart
, plus the MH300 GreenHeart headset, which comes bundled with the first one. Both handsets are candybars, with the C901 GreenHeart housing a 2.2-inch QVGA display, in addition to 5-megapixel, xenon flash camera. The manufacturer has used reduced packaging materials, recycled plastics, optimized display light and waterborne paint in order to reduce the lifetime CO2 footprint of the device by 15%. The Naite also has its CO2 footprint brought down by 15% thanks to smaller packaging, recycled plastics, optimized display brightness and a low-power charger. The Naite sports a 2.2-inch QVGA display and 2MP camera. Sony Ericsson has cut down on paper usage with over 90%, so do not expect to find User Manual in the box of either of these, there will be in-phone e-manuals instead.
The C901 GreenHeart is quad-band GSM, dual-band 3G phone that will become available on select markets in Q2, while the Naite is a quad-band GSM, single-band 3G that is scheduled for a Q3 launch. Both handsets have American 3G versions.
