Nokia announced today that it will be launching special “green” versions of the N8 and the C7 on Telefonica. N8 and C7 smartphones come pre-loaded with ‘green’ content like the Climate Mission game, and are delivered in a 100% recyclable packaging, with a compact start-up guide that saves paper. They are having the same look and performance of the models that Nokia had released prior.
In the past the C7 and N8 were already more eco-aware, so they are chosen again. They respectively use bio-paints and bio-plastics to reduce their impact, and the use of regular AMOLEDs consumes less power than a typical LCD or Samsung’s Super AMOLED. The eco-friendly N8 and C7 will be first launched in Spain, where Telefonica offers services under the Movistar brand. The smartphones will also be avaialble in the UK (O2), Germany (O2), Argentina, Chile and Peru.
