This phone here isn’t a stunning revelation like the others we generally cover here on CB. Yet, it bears credentials which did push us into giving it a mention here. The Samsung Guru E1107 is the first solar powered mobile to be commercially sold (in India) and Samsung intends to incorporate this technology into a number of phones from the mainstream lineage as well. It has been almost a month since it came into reckoning but it didn’t create the hubbub it should have and probably the pricing of about $55 (INR 2,799) had something to do with major technology sites ignoring this development-we assume. The E1107 can provide 5 to 10 minutes of talk-time with an hour of solar charging which sounds good enough to help you in emergency situations. All that is required is to place the switched-off phone in sunlight with the rear atop (it bears the solar panel). To fully charge the phone, the battery requires 40 hours of solar charging.
