Nokia Cell Chargers Talking Back?


The mobile industry is looking for ways to become more eco-friendly, such as Motorola developing solar chargers and Nokia developing a phone to talk back.

It is estimated that unplugging all cell phone chargers not in use, could save enough energy to power 60,000 homes. To minimize “phantom” power (power sucked by appliances switched in standby mode) from phone chargers, Nokia is thinking of having cell phone’s announce “Please unplug charger” upon full charge - giving us a chance to conserve energy by quickly unplugging the charger. Nokia plans to include such alerts into phone sometimes this year.

    most certainly have the gift.
