If you’re looking for a phone that you don’t need to recharge constantly, you might want to check out what’s going on at the China Beijing International Expo 2007.

At the show Beijing Hengjiweiye unveiled their solar mobile phone. The phone recharges its battery simply by absorbing light. So as long as you don’t keep it in your pocket all day, you shouldn’t have to worry too much about recharging.
