Japan cellphone giant, NTT DoCoMo, has developed this Nintendo Gameboy Advance SP-looking cellphone. This phone actually includes the solar cells on the external side of the clamshell—therefore not needing any other devices to use the sun's rays to charge. On a side note: this would be great for those of us that constantly forget their cellphone chargers regularly (I'm home for the holidays and I forgot mine again, damnit!).

Yeah instead of two LCD color displays just add a solar panel and include a mounting kit (even suction cups) so we can put it on the car dashboard for reach it easily while it's charging. Also include a neck strap to wear it and charge while walking around. Finally a cell phone that makes sense and not just some new crapotronich technogadget to put in a phone just to have.
