Samsung India has launched a new solar-powered enabled Solar Guru (Guru E1107) GSM based-network phone exclusively in India. The low-end Solar Guru will hit the open market in next fifteen days at a price point of Rs 2,799. Apart from solar charging, it has a display size of 1.52-inch, 1MB memory and 800mAh battery.
Sunil Dutt, Country Head, Mobile Business, Samsung India, said, "As of now we are importing Solar Guru from Korea. However, we will soon start the production locally at Noida factory, which has the capacity to produce one million phones in a month. We are planning to position the product in rural areas, and targeting those users who have less talking hours, and face power supply problems. The phone has a dual option of solar and electronic charging as well."
The Samsung Solar Guru (Samsung Guru 1107) is priced at Rs. 2799. Following its introduction in India, the Solar Guru will be launched in various markets including Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, and Latin America in June 2009.
This phone here isn’t a stunning revelation like the others we generally cover here on CB. Yet, it bears credentials which did push us into giving it a mention here. The Samsung Guru E1107 is the first solar powered mobile to be commercially sold (in India) and Samsung intends to incorporate this technology into a number of phones from the mainstream lineage as well. It has been almost a month since it came into reckoning but it didn’t create the hubbub it should have and probably the pricing of about $55 (INR 2,799) had something to do with major technology sites ignoring this development-we assume. The E1107 can provide 5 to 10 minutes of talk-time with an hour of solar charging which sounds good enough to help you in emergency situations. All that is required is to place the switched-off phone in sunlight with the rear atop (it bears the solar panel). To fully charge the phone, the battery requires 40 hours of solar charging.
The Samsung E1107 Crest Solar Guru is a photovoltaic charging cell phone. The phone has photovoltaic panel at the back, which helps to charge the battery with sun light. With one hour of solar charging, the phone offers 5-10 minutes of talk-time. It takes 40 hours for charging the phone fully for 12-hour long talk time.
The Solar Crest Guru E1107 is eco-friendly phone. It is made from the recycled material and it is free from noxious substances such as beryllium and phthalates.
The Solar Crest Guru E1107 is equipped with 1.52-inch CSTN display (128 x 128 pixels). The phone comes pre-loaded with FM radio, MP3 ring tones, and embedded games. The phone features torchlight, mobile tracker, and I MB memory. The Crest Guru E1107 offers support for dual band GSM connectivity (900/1800 MHz). The phone is powered by 800mAh battery.
The Solar Crest Guru E1107 is a nice option for the people living in the rural areas or the regions experiencing long power cuts. Overall, the Samsung Solar Crest Guru E1107 is nice low-priced affordable phone. The phone is available for Rs 2,799 in India.
The Samsung Solar Guru E1107 mobile phone handset costs you just 60USD[2800INR] which is a very less investment if you are looking for a backup handset with unlimited power source. You can go for a holiday with this kind of backup handset and recharge it anytime anywhere, provided its day time and you are in good sun light. The handset provides you with 5-10 minutes of talk time with 1 hour of solar charging, which means that in order to get 2 hours of talk time you need to keep this handset for a full day in the hot sun.

What i feel is that this handset may get corrupted and useless soon because the harmful rays can either burn up the screen, along with the internal parts also getting problematic, unless the hardware is real solid and made of something like aluminium or steel but at this budget price i dont think this is nothing other than a fibre or plastic mobile phone. The handset offers you with FM radio, MP3 ring tones, embedded games and a powerful torch light. The best part is that it comes with mobile tracker system which means that if your handset is lost you dont have to worry because you can track it back.
