Motorola takes environmentally-conscious MOTOCUBO A45 to Brazil

Chris Ziegler

To call the industrial design of Motorola's new MOTOCUBO A45 "polarizing" might be an understatement, but at least we can all agree that cutting back on a phone's environmental impact is a good thing, right? The A45 -- which we'd previously spied as the Murano -- is a pretty run-of-the-mill messaging phone with a 2 megapixel cam, EDGE data, 3.5mm headphone jack, FM radio, a "fresh and modern" (their words, not ours) design and color scheme, and built-in access to Orkut, Facebook, and MySpace, but the big news here has to be the eco angle. Like the Renew before it, the MOTOCUBO is made in part from recycled plastic bottles and is 70 percent recyclable when you've moved on to bigger, better, stronger phones down the road -- but for now, plan on spending R$549 (about $292) unlocked when it hits Brazil next month.
