The Greenheart C901 was announced last month

A recycling expert has commented on one of Sony Ericsson's latest announcements.

Last month, the manufacturer unveiled two new devices - the C901 and Naite - which form the backbone of its new Greenheart product line.

Gerrard Fisher, programme manager for sustainable products at the Waste & Resources Action Programme (Wrap) has welcomed the launch, noting that it is just one of a range of eco-friendly moves by the manufacturer.

"This is an encouraging development and we are seeing an exciting new trend in the mobile phone market, with Nokia's Evolve phone and many Motorola phones also incorporating recycled plastics," he commented.

Mr Fisher continued by saying such positive steps were to be encouraged and the reduced level of packaging some phones now come with is also better for the planet.

The Sony Ericsson C901 GreenHeart boasts a five-megapixel camera with 16x digital zoom, integrated media player and geo tagging. The Naite carries a two-megapixel snapper and Bluetooth connectivity.
