Handies laden per Fahrraddynamo - Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit

Es geht - wenn man will. Und wenn man einen Markt hat. Für den boomenden Handy-Markt Afrika (+ Indien & China) bringt Nokia ein paar günstige und halbwegs umweltfreundliche Handies raus uuuuuuuuuund ne Ladestation die über den Fahrraddynamo gespeist wird. Nicht schlecht, könnte durchaus ein Erfolg werden - sonst fallen mir eigentlich nur der Forumslader oder ähnliches ein, die dafür geeignet wären.

"New alternative charging solution debuts
Providing free and environmentally friendly electricity for mobile phones, the Nokia Bicycle Charger Kit consists of a charger and dynamo, as well as a holder to secure the phone to the bike. When the kit is installed, the dynamo - a small electrical generator - uses the movement of the wheels to charge the handset through the standard 2mm charging jack used in most Nokia mobile phones. Lambeek continued, "You must look at a number of things when it comes to power management - such as ensuring the phone's operating system is as power-efficient as possible. Now, with our innovative bike charger, people get even more freedom to use their Nokia without worrying about battery life. Bicycles are the most widespread means of transport in many markets around the world, so this is just one more benefit to be gained from an activity people are already doing. This is a great solution to a real challenge, whether people will use it due to limited access to electricity, or to be more environmentally responsible." The kit will be available before the end of the year in selected retailers and Nokia online and branded retail.

The estimated retail prices of the new Nokia mobile phones, before taxes and subsidies, are:
Nokia C1 (C1-00) EUR 30
Nokia C1 (C1-02) EUR 35
Nokia C1 (C1-01) EUR 39
Nokia C2 (C2-00) EUR 45

The Nokia C1 (C1-00) is expected to ship in the third quarter of 2010, with the Nokia C1 (C1-01) in the early fourth quarter, and the Nokia C1 (C1-02) and Nokia C2 towards the end of the fourth quarter 2010.
