With people refreshing their kit ever year, to year and a half, it means truck loads of used and unwanted electronics.  Recycling is such a massive undertaking here in California that we pay a recycling fee anytime we buy a cell phone, mp3 player, etc.  Sony Ericsson, with all this in mind, has developed a concept phone that is constructed of eco friendly materials.  It features a bio plastic housing, recycle keypads, e-manuals, and recycled packaging. The phone your seeing is purely conceptual and is intended to serve as a benchmark for SE and other companies of the same ilk.

Of note, with the advent of software upgradeable phones we’ll hopefully begin to see longer refresh cycles on people’s equipment.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
