Motorola introduces rubbish (recycled) mobile

Motorola has introduced a mobile phone made of recycled water bottles on Tuesday, hoping to cash in on the trend for environmentally friendly products.

It did not disclose pricing for the phone, which will be showcased at this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The W233 Renew eco-friendly phone would be sold by Deutsche Telekom's T-Mobile USA in the current quarter.

The company claimed it was the world's first carbon neutral phone. As well as using recycled materials for the plastic casing, the company also pledged to offset the carbon dioxide used in manufacturing, distribution and operation of the phone through investments in renewable energy sources and reforestation.
