    As far as I'm concerned the battery life is not broken.

    I thought there was just news about how Nokia tried this and could barely matain enough power to keep a phone's 1G/2G radio on, and no where near enough to keep the screen on.

    I'll see if I can find the link. That said, this looks awesome if true.

    nokia's solar panel phone was similar to samsung's solar phone (which failed also).
    solar panel was on backside of phone so it was impractical.

    I noticed on video he said it would generate 250mwH.
    let see, extended battery on GNex has 7.7WH for like 8hrs of usage.. 1hr charging would give 25minues. so 8hrs of usage would increase to like 10 1/2hr..
    and thats bloody cheap, he said it would cost manufacturer 1$.
