Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, today announced its first solar powered mobile phone, the “Crest Solar” (E1107). The new handset enables its users to charge the battery anywhere the sun is shining when electricity is unavailable.
“The Crest Solar represents our effort and commitment to strengthen our leadership in the solar panel mobile market,” said Executive Vice President JK Shin, head of the Mobile Communication Division at Samsung Electronics.
“With Samsung’s cutting edge technology and consumer-oriented strategy, I believe the Crest Solar will be the perfect fit for anyone in any market – not only because it is solar powered, but because it has features that were designed to appeal to various cultures.”
The Crest Solar will be available in numerous markets including India, Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, and Latin America from June 2009.
