First Vodafone Branded Solar Powered Mobile Phone Launched In Qatar

12 January 2011:Vodafone Qatar is launching the first Vodafone branded,  solar powered  mobile phone at a special offer price of just QR129 which includes a Welcome Pack and Red 10 recharge card.

Ideal for using Qatar's abundant sunshine more effectively and limit the need to recharge using electricity, the Vodafone 247 is constructed from eco-friendly materials and features a 1.4 inch screen, FM Radio and micro USB connector for charger and headset support. The VF 247 is designed with an integrated solar panel, ideal for charging on the go, saving users both time and money. Fully charged, the VF 247 gives customers 200 hours standby time and 240 minutes talk time.

VF 247 call features include vibrate alert, speakerphone and polyphonic ringtones. The handset fits comfortably in the palm and features predictive text input, handy flashlight and tri-band roaming capability.

"With the new VF 247 handset you won't have to worry about when you are next going to be able to charge the battery. It's so simple and obvious, but the combination of solar power and a low-cost handset will hopefully make a world of difference for many people in Qatar," said Daniel Horan, Vodafone Commercial Business Unit Director.

The VF 247 is available now from all Vodafone retail stores in Qatar - visit for more information.
