Nokia has unveiled the “Remade” concept phone, made entirely of recycled materials, at MWC.
Although just a prototype and non-operational at the moment, the message this phone sends is very good, and very green.
The case and touch-sensitive keypad are made from old cans, hence their metallic finish. Even the electrical components can be created from recycled materials.
“It really shows what can be done with materials,” said Nokia CEO Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo. “It is only a concept now – I cannot make a phone call – but it gives you an insight into how we think we can break new ground.”
It’s great to see Nokia thinking green while trying to stay classy. The phone looks good, and certainly would do more good than harm were it ever produced.

Rumor has it that chip manufacturer ARM will be showcasing an Android phone at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week. Could this be our first real peek at what the platform has to offer?
It’s interesting that ARM would be a company that chooses to show off Android. Traditionally, ARM licenses processor technologies for use in everything from iPhones to routers, but they doesn’t actually make the processors themselves.
This announcement follows that of HTC, which as already said that it will be one of the first manufacturers to offer an Android device. NTT DoCoMo has also recently announced a joint venture with Google to create one of the first Android handsets.
So, who will really be first? Only time will tell.
