2012-07-16Mumbai -- IT News Online -- Micromax Informatics Ltd. has launched in India the Micromax X259 with a built-in solar panel. The Micromax X259 is the company's first solar phone that enables the users to charge their phone using solar energy.
The Micromax X259 comes with a solar panel technology through which the phone automatically gets charged through solar power on exposure to sunlight. With unpredictable power cuts specifically in the rural areas this handset will be the perfect solution to address the issue of recharging the phone through electricity.

We have introduced many categories into this competitive industry - be it long battery life phones or dual SIM phones. With the introduction of this phone our intent is to get rid of the mobile phone charger by including a solar panel on the device itself."
