Palm Pre Plus not great for the environment? 71
Gizmodo points out that O2 UK has started publishing 'ecoratings' for many of their phones (but not, notably, BlackBerrys or the iPhone). Sadly, on their scale of 1 to 5, the Palm Pre Plus clocks in at the bottom with a lowly 2.7. O2 takes in a number of factors in determining their rating, from packaging to materials to supply chain issues to the manufacturer's 'social inclusion and community.'
As we said, we can't see how the Pre Plus stacks up against the iPhone or BlackBerry devices, but seeing it score so poorly compared to HTC, Sony Ericsson, and Samsung is a little disheartening.
Would a 'Ecorating' factor into your next smartphone purchase?
