Nokia’s Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phones are both eco-friendly

Already available in select markets, Nokia’s first two Windows Phone 8 devices – the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 – hide something that hasn’t been widely known: they are quite eco-friendly.

Both new Lumias are free of harmful substances like PVC, antimony trioxide, brominated and chlorinated compounds, and nickel (only on the product surface). Their packaging contains up to 60% recycled material, and is itself 100% recyclable. Moreover, “all materials of the devices can be recovered as materials and energy.”

The Lumia 820 even contains bio-based materials (“refined from non-edible plants rather than fossil sources”) in its cover and inner parts.

In Europe, the Lumia 920 (pictured above) costs €649 unlocked, while the Lumia 820 is obviously cheaper: €499.

In the US, the 920 and 820 will be offered by AT&T starting this month. Slightly different versions of the 820 – namely Lumia 822 and Lumia 810 – will be sold by Verizon and T-Mobile, respectively.

    This should matter, Nokia should be supported for their efforts. I don’t think it will be a main factor in phone sales because when it comes to the environment more people talk the talk then walk the walk. sad but true. its very true this planet will soon have billions of toxic phones leaking poisons such as lithium ,Cadmium, mercury,arsenic, and others into our grounds adding to the troubles of our offspring’s future .
