Living Green: LG unveils solar-powered cell phone

Not to be outdone by Samsung's new Blue Earth handset, LG Electronics has announced its own new solar powered cell phone. The surprisingly attractive handset features an array of tiny solar panels built into the cover of the phone.

According to LG, exposing the solar panel to the sun for a mere ten minutes will charge the phone with enough juice to make a three-minute call. No pricing or release date have been announced, but if these recent moves by Samsung and LG are true indicators of energy trends, our gadget future will indeed be a lot more eco-friendly.
