Philips phone w/AAA backup

An upcoming cellphone from Philips may solve problems with drained batteries. Called the Xenium NRG, the phone will have a regular fixed battery, but will also be able to run off of a single AAA battery for three hours should the main one stop. Philips has also said that any brand of battery will be compatible, and can be either disposable or rechargeable. In the case of the latter, the backup battery will charge at same time as the main battery.

Remaining features of NRG are generally unknown, but it will be a flip-phone, and have an external display as well as a still camera. It is expected to launch sometime later this year, but pricing and the countries that will receive it have not been mentioned. [via BusinessWeek]
