The usual state of affairs today often means that choosing a green product results in a premium price, but this is not the case in the mobile phone arena with Sony Ericsson launching the Cedar. This phone from the Greenheart range can be picked up for free on a contract starting with a tiny £10pm line rental.
The Cedar is made from Eco friendly materials and is supplied with a low power consumption charger, waterborne paint and compact packaging. The handset is also designed for comfort with a natural fit into the palm due to its natural human curvature.
Even though there has been a strong green focus the feature set hasn’t taken a hit and we see popular services such as Facebook, Twitter & MySpace integration and Widget Manager 2.0 that enables you to manage your shortcuts and put your favourite applications within easy reach.
Media functions include a YouTube client, 3D gaming, an MP3/4 player and a 2-megapixel camera that can also capture short video clips. On the connectivity side of things there is Bluetooth, email/push email and 3G/Wi-Fi Web browsing.
There’s plenty more to discover with the Sony Ericsson Cedar and this high-tech phone comes with the feel good factor of a green product.
