Nokia Energy Saver Alerts

Nokia today announced that it has begun including a new, eco-friendly alert system into all of its newer phones. Starting with the 1200 series as well as the 1650, the company's handsets will now warn owners to unplug their cellphone charger when the battery is full, preventing the charger from consuming power that will simply go wasted. The savings from this act alone could supply power to 85,000 homes a year, Nokia says.

The move is targeted first at the entry-level phones to encourage power saving in developing countries such as China and India, where the sheer number of users would have the most effect. Nokia also plans to cut in half the amount of energy an empty charger uses by 2010.
