Green Channel - Eco-Friendly Mobile Phone – Sony Ericsson Elm
The digital camera is pretty impressive. At a resolution of 5 megapixels, it’s pretty reasonable for a phone camera. However, I found the sharpness of the image and auto focus to be exceptionally excellent. Autofocus is one of those things with phone cameras that are generally a little rough around the edges, but this phone solves that problem.
In terms of green features, it’s good to see a phone avoiding hazardous materials like lead and mercury. What I did particularly like is the Walk Mate Eco application, which is essentially a pedometer. So when you go for a walk, the application can tell you how far you’ve walked. The application also tells you how much carbon dioxide you’ve saved by walking. If you’re the kind of person who likes to beat high scores in a game, then the pedometer application will push you to walk more and more!
So all in, the Sony Ericsson Elm is a decent looking and practical mobile phone. I think there’s a lot more to come in terms of eco-friendly features in the future, but I think that the Elm is a big step in the right direction.
