Samsung Water-Powered Cellphone On the Way

Illustration for article titled Samsung Water-Powered Cellphone On the Way

We heard about the remote possibility of water-powered cellphones over a year ago, but now Samsung has actually developed one. The company announced a micro fuel cell and hydrogen generator that will be capable of powering small electronics such as cellphones for 10 hours on nothing but good old water.

At first the company says the fuel will be in the form of hydrogen cartridges that must be changed every four days or so if you use the phone for four hours a day. Later, Samsung plans to evolve the design so all you'll need to do is put some water in your cellphone and you're good to go. Don't expect anything like this anytime soon, though, because the first water-powered phones won't hit the market until 2010. [Chosun]

"When the handset is turned on, metal and water in the phone react to produce hydrogen gas"

Gizmodo lie tu us.

It dont run on water, it run on water and metal(aluminium?).

About "Later, Samsung plans to evolve the design so all you'll need to do is put some water"-

they mean that you wil have to put water, and charge it. Yes charging(probably faster than with regular batery)!

So please, dont write trash news here. It just isnt powered by water, ok?
