Nokia's Eco-Phone Isn't Really All That Eco

We've been wondering how Eco Nokia's "eco-minded" 3110 Evolve really is. Our first impression was "not very," and it turns out that's pretty accurate.

Smart Planet did a quick review of the phone and, based on their assessment, I'll give you the same advice I give everyone else...the greenest phone is the one you're already using.

The Evolve's green cred comes from a few places, all of which should be included in every single phone being sold today. These features include: Less packaging, more recycled content in the packaging, bio-plastic keys, and a charger that eats less power when the phone isn't plugged into it.

None of these things are going to have a significant impact on the canadian pharmacy cialis generic world unless they're used in all of the billion phones out there. Why are they still using overblown packaging for the rest of their phones? Why don't they use recycled paper in all of their packaging. Why do the vast majority of their chargers suck power from the wall even when nothing's plugged into them?

So your best choice? Don't get a new phone every year...my LG VX9800 continues to be the only cell phone I've ever owned...and having a phone that lives twice as long is basically a phone that is http://www.transitofvenus.org/viagra-online-no-prescription twice as green.

do you think it's worth it to go for this phone if you *have* to buy a new one? my current phone is 3yrs old & has pretty much kicked the bucket, so i'm going to be purchasing a new one in the next month or so.

jess- I would recommend buying a phone via craigslist or getting a phone through freecycle. stay local. use phones that have already met consumer "need" rather than create more (it's unnecessary).

Buying an Evolve
written by Adam Vaughan, April 11, 2008
Hi Jess, I'm the guy at SmartPlanet who reviewed it. I think it is worth buying if you really want to buy a *new* phone. As Hank points out, Nokia should really be doing all this stuff with all its phones, but it's not yet -- and at least buying this might encourage Nokia that's there money in greening up its act. Alternatively, Julia has a good point -- you could always get a refurbed/second hand phone.

Discerning Consumers

If we are more discerning when making purchases companies would put more thought into their products. At the moment people are happy to upgrade their phone just because it comes in a different casing.
Unnecessary upgrades lead to www.asian-americans.com unnecessary landfill.
