Hot on the heels of the Nokia N79 Active comes the Nokia N79 Eco, something that looks to be exactly like any other Nokia N79 package except for one thing: it ships without a charger.
This is reportedly done for the benefit of the WWF (£4 is donated to the WWF with each Nokia N79 Eco purchase) and in order to save on energy and waste. And for further savings it also ships in a smaller box compared to normal Nokia N79 retail packages.
Interestingly enough, the Nokia N79 Eco costs just about the same as normal Nokia N79 retail packages at £319 or about $467. But for those who are just upgrading from older Nokia phones, the lack of a charger probably won’t matter, even at a price like that. Heck, some people might even afford to lose the user manual and box, and it would still be alright.
In any case, it’s for a good cause, and one that I’m sure many will be glad to support.
