NTT Prototype Phone Gets Back to Nature

Ainsley Jones

NTT DoCoMo is experimenting with compressed wooden cases for cell phones. The Japanese handset manufacturer developed a mobile phone prototype made with the surplus wood of trees culled during thinning operations to help maintain healthy forests, reports Dial-a-Phone.


Dubbed the Touch Wood, the device features a slider design with a haptic touchscreen and a 5.2-megapixel camera. NTT is also planning another model with a curved design similar to that of the iPhone, says IndiaServer.
