Solar Screens May Make Phone Chargers Obsolete

How would you like to have a cellphone that never needed to be charged? That’s the promise of French company Wysips, which wants to turn your phone’s screen into a solar charger.

It works like this: a transparent photovoltaic film covers the screen of your device, and provides 250mW of power to trickle-charge the battery. The film is thin — just 100 microns or 0.1mm — and won’t dim the screen when incorporated into the LCD panel. Wysips says the film will typically add just a dollar to the cost of a phone, and hopes to have shipping units within a year.

I don't have a need for GPS navigation ... well, not up till now, in this area, anyway.  Could sure do with it tomorrow when I have to find my way round Edinburgh.

I was desperate for a new phone as mine was pretty much broken and Nexus One wasn't out in the UK and I didn't want to wait. Yes it is terrible value but I wanted it asap.

If I could go back in time, I'd probably not do it lol

Many iPhone users arrived at work an hour late this morning after a glitch caused their smartphone's alarm to malfunction.
In the latest clock woe to strike the Apple device, some phones rang their alert an hour late, while others were an hour early and many didn't ring at all.
