astra -> LG Pop GD510 phone with optional solar panel announced. (9/30/2009 2:36:07 PM)

A mobile phone named Pop has been announced today from the LG camp, moonlighting under the model number GD510. With a 3-inch touchscreen, it's much like every other mobile on the market...until you clap eyes on the full-sized solar panel on the back of the device.

Minus 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, the Pop is very much an entry-level smartphone. A 3.0-megapixel camera for capturing photos and video, 8GB of internal storage for storing them on, and an easy-to-use media player suggest this handset is aimed firmly at the younger crowd who aren't too bothered about connectivity.

If they're keen on saving the environment however, they've chosen the right handset. Customers will have to shell out for the interchangeable back, which will be sold separately for £29.99, and will get 3 minutes of talk time after charging the battery under direct sunlight for 11 minutes.

The casing is made from brushed aluminum and a single button has been added to the bottom of the device, which can be used as the menu, end and cancel functions - supposedly a light will shine either red or green to highlight what function the button will perform.

On sale in Europe this October, there's no word on pricing for the LG Pop GD510 yet.
