Nokia's N79 Eco cares about the environment

nokia-n79.jpgAfter all those Nokia upgrades, it would be easy to mistake you for some kind of Nokia charger salesperson. You may have a charger in various locations, but all this charger accumulation isn’t exactly kind to the environment. And let’s face it, we don’t all take our unwanted chargers to the place where they all get recycled do we? Well, Nokia wants to put an end to all this unnecessary wastage by scrapping the charger that comes with the N79 (dubbed the N97 Eco) when you buy it online, meaning minimal packaging and plenty of green points for Nokia (which should keep them at the green end of the Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics). Nokia will also be donating £4 of each phone sold to WWF, the global conservation organisation.

Nothing’s changed with the handset itself – so it’s still a cute candybar phone, with a 2.4-inch screen, 5 megapixel camera with a Carl Zeiss lens and 20x digital zoom, WiFi, 3.5G and A-GPS.

It’s available on pre-order now, on a handset only basis for £319 plus the added cost of £3.99 for postage and packaging.
