Nokia charges users to be green

Alerts telling users to unplug after a phone is finished charging will be a new feature on three of Nokia's phone models.

Unplugging your phone after it's done charging could save a bundle of electricity, which is why Nokia is launching a new feature encouraging users to do just that.

The Finnish cell-phone maker announced Thursday that three of its mass-market phones--the Nokia 1200, 1208 and 1650--will alert users when the handset is done charging and suggest it be unplugged. The feature will eventually be rolled out to all of Nokia's products.

The move to be more energy-conscious is part of a larger agreement mobile phone manufacturers made in September 2006.
