During Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this week, LG showed off its green side by displaying a solar powered cell phone. The photovoltaic cells on the back of the device provide enough juice to charge the phone's battery, so that there is no need for a wall charger. LG claims that ten minutes of direct sunlight exposure provides enough charge for a 3 minute chat.

The new solar panel backs could potentially be slipped onto any LG device to harness the sun's natural light. LG expects this cell phone to become available later this year.
