Sony Ericsson’s flagship eco mobile phone for this year is expected to sell for around £300 Sim-free.
In a live web chat yesterday, members of Sony Ericsson’s team of green mobile phone developers revealed that the cost of the C901 Greenheart phone for German consumers will stand at around 359 Euros.
This equates to a price point of around £300 in the UK for the handset, which forms a key part of the company’s drive to cut its carbon emissions by 20 per cent by 2015.
Meanwhile, the similarly planet-friendly Naite phone will sell for about 159 Euros, or around £136, the Sony Ericsson development team revealed.
Both handsets employ recycled plastics in their construction and use less packaging than standard mobile phones.
They will also feature a range of environmentally-friendly applications, such as a carbon footprint calculator, and a pedometer, dubbed WalkMate.
The C901 Greenheart is being tipped for release during the second quarter of this year, with the Naite expected to go on sale shortly afterwards.
Sony Ericsson's release schedule for this year also includes the Satio, a 12 megapixel cameraphone, and the successor to the Xperia X1, the Xperia X2.
