Both GreenHeart phones have low-power chargers and casings made from “a minimum of 50% recycled plastics”. Moreover, they include e-manuals, which reduce paper usage by 90%, while their small packaging reduces transport related CO² emissions by more than 80%.
Sony Ericsson says that, thanks to these eco-friendly innovations, the overall CO² footprint of the new GreenHeart devices is reduced by 15%. The company intends “to reduce full life cycle CO² emissions by 15% for all products by 2015.”
The first new phone, Sony Ericsson C901 GreenHeart, is obviously a remake of the C901 Cyber-shot candybar that’s already available for purchase.
Apart from the fact that it comes in white and it’s environmentally friendly, its features are the same, including a QVGA display, accelerometer, HSDPA connectivity and a 5MP autofocus camera with Xenon flash. It’s worth mentioning that the phone’s display uses less energy, while its waterborne paint lowers exposure to VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds).
Sony Ericsson C901 GreenHeart will be available starting this quarter. It will be sold with the MH300 GreenHeart headset, which is “made up of 100% recycled plastics in 4 out of 5 hard plastic parts and far exceeding legal environmental requirements”. The phone’s price was not announced.
The second GreenHeart phone, Sony Ericsson Naite, is also a candybar:
The specs of Sony Ericsson Naite include:
- Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz)
- Tri-band UMTS/HSPA connectivity (850/1900/2100 MHz)
