StarHub and iNo Mobile Introduces Singapore's First Solar-Charging Mobile Phone, SOLO

SINGAPORE - StarHub and Foresight Technologies today announced the launch of the innovative ‘SOLO’, an entry-level, affordable feature mobile phone, ruggedly designed for military personnel and outdoor adventurers.

SOLO’s most unique feature is its solar charging battery that backs up its lithium battery to further extend the usefulness of the phone in outdoor locations where users have no easy access to power points. Simply place the rugged phone in a sunny spot and it will recharge automatically. It takes about 24 hours to fully charge the solar battery. Standby time of the SOLO is up to 200 hours, and a talk-time of up to 200 minutes.

In addition, the SOLO is built in an Army-Green rubberise casing which protects the phone from accidental drops and shocks. It is also splash-proof and dust-proof. SOLO comes equipped with a 1.8” LED screen with 65K colours, a mini-torchlight for night activities and an FM radio.

The SOLO retails for $99 with any one-year StarHub Mobile post-paid plan (except PowerValue 80). It is exclusively available at all StarHub Shops and selected Exclusive Partners' outlets islandwide from 9 July 2011.
