• FormNation E-Ink phone stays powered on for a month on a single charge

  • e-ink-phoneWe all hate watching energy trickle out of our mobile phones. For the most of us, plugging a phone into a charging outlet is the worst part of the day. To make things easier, NY design consultancy FormNation has taken a few technological steps back to unveil this phone that promises to stay powered on for roughly about a month on a single charge! Dutch-born designer Jan Habraken and his team designed an e-ink prototype of the iPhone that is affordable, performs all the necessary tasks you’d expect from a phone, and stays on for a month on a single charge.

    Called the FormNation E-Ink phone, this one also has no screen glare and looks quite fantastic too. “Do we really need angry birds or flying pigs?” Habraken asks. “While to some E-Ink might seem like reverting from HDTV to black and white, we see this as the difference in beauty between full color and black and white photography.” To be honest, we love the idea and the look of this device. Hell, we’d even switch our androids for one of these! The asking price? $175-$200 a pop!
