Ok, this phone was already reviewed and featured in Engadget, but what is interesting about the Puma Phone is that it is the first phone that I know that has a solar panel at the back. After reading the review, I got the nostalgic feeling like I was back in the 90’s, remember those solar calculators
and watches. The phones looks sturdy and sporty and it could be the phone that you are looking for.

I wonder if there will be another phone that will have a solar panel? iPhone 5 or an Android? If you’re planning to buy this phone, I
strongly suggest that you read the Engadget’s Review first. 😉
