Micromax launches solar phone X259

Micromax Informatics Limited has launched a 'green phone' X259. X250 comes with a built-in solar panel and allows users to charge their phones using solar energy. According to the company, the phone automatically gets charged through solar power on exposure to sunlight.
This is especially targeted at rural areas where there is shortage and frequent power cut.
 Micromax X259 features a 2.4 inch QVGA screen with a resolution of 240X320. This has expandable storage upto 4GB. The phone is powered with a 1000mAh Li-ion battery and facilitates dual SIM dual standby feature. The users can share images, videos, music with friends through the phone's Bluetooth connectivity. Micromax X259's multimedia features include audio and video player and FM radio with recording.
Micromax X259 Solar Phone is priced at Rs 2499 and will be available across all leading retail outlets across India. 
Now its time to get review from customer once it reaches to large mass of customer.if we just talk about innovation then it is really innovative idea which will overcome battery problem while we are on move and there is no option for electricity.
As for the solar panel, the manufacturer claims that the phone can be charged by exposure to sunlight, with three hours of charging resulting in 1.5 hours of talk time. Micromax is  not the first to try its  such a technology.  Nokia had  also started something similar earlier this year, only to kill the project before rolling it out commercially.  Samsung had gone so far as to commercially launch a solar-powered phone, called the Solar Guru (Guru E1107) in India over three years ago, but it is already disappeared from market. It time for Micromax to test how much they are capable to stand with this technology and evolve in days to come
