This low-end phone features a large solar cell on its back cover that can keep its 800mAh battery charged when exposed to the sun. 1 hour of solar charging can provide an additional 5 to 10 minutes of talk time. Other interesting features include a 1.52-inch CSTN display with 128 x 128 pixels and 65K colors, an FM radio, MP3 ringtones, a built-in flashlight, a Mobile Tracker and supports dual band GSM connectivity (900/1800 MHz). The phone will be available in Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, and Latin America starting in June 2009.
