Mobile recyclers advised on green Motorola

The Renew was announced earlier this year

For many, recycling mobile phones is a decision based on environmental responsibility - and a new review has looked at a device that may be of interest to this particular group.

The Motorola W233 Renew has been put to the test by Ricky Cadden of Mobile Burn this week, concluding the handset is clearly "green-minded" - but also "has a few other tricks up its sleeve".

Announced in January at the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the model is partially made from recycled plastic bottles, is manufactured to a 100 per cent carbon neutral standard and comes in specially designed packaging.

However, Mr Cadden suggests eco-friendly users will also find that the gadget offers great call clarity, solid build quality and a high performance battery.

"The Renew is estimated to offer nine hours of talk time, while standby time is rated at 18 days," he explained. "I was easily able to last through three days of moderate usage, with several phone calls and a few hours of music playback."
