LG Electronics (LG) launched the LG GD510, or "Pop," which can be recharged utilizing the power of the sun.

The phone's solar-battery cover uses the power of the sun to charge the phone. Ten minutes under the sun provides up to 2 minutes 15 seconds of talk time or up to 180 minutes of standby time.

The phone does not contain any polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and is made free of BFR (brominated flame retardants) and CFR (chlorinated flame retardants) almost up to 99.9%.

It will be available in Europe in mid October, followed by other markets.
