The Mobile World Congress saw cellphone manufacturers unveiling the futuristic devices, where Samsung and LG took the front benches by unveiling their solar-powered fantasies. Though the devices are still to make it to the shelves, Samsung has tried to become the first once again by launching a solar-powered cellphone designed specifically for green-minded users who don’t want to spend much on their handsets.

The Samsung Crest E1107 carries a rear-mounted solar panel which according to the company generates enough electricity to give the user about 10 minutes of calling time after an hour of sun exposure. Priced at just $59, the device won’t carry the same specifications as your high-end smart phone, but does offer some basic features that include FM Radio, MP3 ringtones and a few other inexpensive features that make this cellphone a cellphone. The company has launched this product for specific markets that include India, Europe, Southeast and Southwest Asia.
