Hands-On With Nokia's All-Recycled Cellphone

Wednesday, April 2, 2008

This is the Nokia Remade, a concept cellphone made from completely recycled materials. Photographer Issac Brekken likened it to a cigarette case. I kind of think it looks like a miniature corrugated roof. Whatever Rosarch shape you think it takes, the handset is made from 100 percent recycled materials. The case is forged from discarded aluminum cans. The glass on the screen? Once it was a (beer?) bottle. Even the rubber that covers the hinge is made from old tires.
The insides of the phone, though, are actually not recycled. Rather they are refurbished components salvaged from other phones. Nokia, however, is exploring options to make the insides out of the same recycled components that comprise the shell.
Never mind the handset itself, want to get ab idea on just how wasteful the packaging is on a cell phone? Get this: according to Nokia, just by reducing the packaging on handsets sold in developing countries, the Finnish company saved 150 million Euros in 2007.
