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.

Woosh... right over my head.  I have a smartphone that outsmarts me any day.  Frown  I haven't got to grips with it one bit.  However, I can ring and text!  Very Happy

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
