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 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 twice as green.
