Waterproof Solar Cellphone From Sharp

In continuation of a recent trend of major manufacturers announcing a new-found interest in making a buck off developing nations solar-powered cellphones, AU (KDDI) and Sharp have announced the June launch of this unnamed solar handset. Besides being the world's first waterproof solar handset, it charges to a minute of talk or 2-hours of standby after just 10 minutes in the sun.
If the phone was in sun for 12 hours a day, that would allow for 24 hours of standby time and 60 minutes of talking. Under that and it would never need to be plugged in for recharging ever.
