Solar powered Hi-Tech Wealth S116 goes retail


Hi-Tech Wealth's solar powered S116 that we caught sight of at CeBIT earlier this year has finally hit official retail status. While the launch date was a bit off the mark, sadly the pricing -- a hefty $510 -- and the sad fact that it is only a dual band GSM set at 900 / 1800MHz hasn't changed. For a first effort at providing power from Ra, we're definitely gonna have to waive the usual frequency criticism and hope that one of the six other handsets they release this year is in a more North American-friendly band. Oh, and yeah, this bad boy can indeed charge by the light of a candle.
