Nokia encourages us to use mobile internet browsing – it’s greener
Nokia is launching some sort of a video-based campaign that’s bound to show us “how easy it is to be green.”
The company’s environmental team has created a series of videos which showcase the fact that mobile phones can help us protect the environment. For example, Nokia says that, with the same amount of energy used to update your Facebook status on a PC once, you can update it 100 times on your phone.
The idea here is that if more people would use their phones instead of their PCs to browse the Web from time to time, “the effect on CO2 emissions would be drastic.”
Of course, updating your Facebook / Twitter / MySpace status or checking your email can be easily done on a phone, but if you need to do more serious browsing, you still can’t do it properly without a PC or a notebook / netbook. Nonetheless, Nokia’s initiative is praise-worthy – let’s hope it will positively affect a large number of phone users (not just Nokia phone users).
