Motorola W233 Renew

 Motorola today announced the world’s first mobile phone made using plastics comprised of recycled water bottles, the W233 Renew .

It features a 128 x 128 65K CSTN display (1.6”), measures 45 x 110.97 x 14.7 mm, microSD card support up to 2GB and has a standby up to 18 days.

Motorola Renew is expected to be available beginning in Q1 2009.

 

Press Release:

Today, natural resources, energy and time are more precious than ever before. That is why Motorola created the environmentally responsible MOTO™ W233 Renew. Not only is the phone’s housing made using plastics comprised of recycled water bottles and 100 percent recyclable, but Renew is also the world’s first carbon neutral phone. Renew delivers the quality you expect from a Motorola device while empowering you to reduce your carbon footprint. Renew was designed for eco-conscious consumers as well as the millions of people who put making phone calls as their number one priority in a mobile phone. Renew makes environmental responsibility affordable for people everywhere.

Renew: Re-use, Recycle
Simple to recycle, Renew is the first mobile phone to be made from plastics comprised of recycled water bottles, which means 20 percent less energy is needed to create the phone compared to standard plastic processes. Plus, the plastic phone housing is 100 percent recyclable, which promotes future environmental responsibility. 

CarbonFree® Product Certification
Motorola is making it easier for you to support the environment. Renew is the first certified CarbonFree® alternative to conventional mobile phones. Through its alliance with Carbonfund.org, Motorola offsets the carbon dioxide required to manufacture, distribute and operate the phone during its lifetime through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation.

Minimize Environmental Waste
Even the phone’s reduced packaging size and in-box materials printed using vegetable-based inks on 100 percent post-consumer recycled paper were created with the environment in mind. And, by reducing package size and weight, we help reduce transportation emissions. An in-box postage-paid recycling envelope also helps you easily return your previous mobile phone for recycling and contribute to environmentally responsible efforts.

Talk More, Charge Less, Conserve More
With up to nine hours of talk time, you can talk more, charge less and reduce your energy usage.

A Commitment to the Environment
Renew is an extension of Motorola’s ongoing global commitment to reduce our impact on the environment. It is a convergence of efforts that lead to better products for everyone, such as Renew.

CrystalTalk™ Technology
Renew uses CrystalTalk technology to amplify your conversation and help reduce background noise so virtually nothing comes between you and your call.

I recently bought the w233 and I like it, but it's nothing special. It uses micro sd (not included :sigh:-) for your music. It charges via usb, but the phone itself doesn't hook up to a computer... except to charge. The menu is really simple and there aren't many options other than phone and sudoku. Instead of a sound recorder, you can make your own tunes using the notes a-g (not a plus, in my opinion). It's fairly easy to use, and a cute little phone, but with no camera and having to buy a micro sd card, it's almost not worth the cute 80% recycled shell. The phone also claims to have some form of special microphone technology that makes it better.. but it sounds basically the same as any other cell phone to me.
