Nokia N79 to be first to ship without a charger
One thing about being a person who has several Nokia devices in the house I have no shortage of chargers available to use. Actually, with a charger at the office, at home and in my gear bag I still have a few others sitting sealed in their boxes. One thing that appeals to me about Nokia is their proactive belief and practices in helping preserve our world for future generations. I recently read on Nokia Users that Nokia is trying out a program where they give buyers the option to make a purchase with or without a charger. The first device to have this option is the Nokia N79 Petrol Black with the original white model having it soon as well.
The devices will be priced the same so there is no direct monetary benefit to buying a package without a charger, however £4 (about US$ ) will be donated to the WWF for each device sold without the charger. Keep in mind that those devices without a charger will also come in a smaller box and thus reduce packaging waste. To help with this effort, Nokia will have to stay focused on limited charger options. Right now most devices use the same charger, but some of the newer devices are coming with the capability to use the microUSB port for charging and syncing.
