BT launches green home phones
BT has launched a new range of more energy-efficient phones, as part of a £2 million($3.9 million) commitment to improve the energy efficiency of its entire home-phone range, reports Pocket-liint.
"The new handsets have power units designed specifically to consume around half the power of previous units, which the company says will not only reduce electricity costs for consumers but also contribute "significantly" to cutting CO2 emissions.
BT has also reduced the amount of packaging required for each phone. This includes replacing the user guides with smaller "quick-start" leaflets, whilst making the fuller, detailed guides available online or on request via the phone."
