Motorola to release ‘recycled’ handset


Motorola Inc will release a handset made of recycled plastic water bottles and a touch-screen device that will compete with Apple Inc’s iPhone.

Both phones will debut at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week and will be available in the first quarter, Schaumburg, Illinois-based Motorola said yesterday in a statement.

T-Mobile USA, a unit of Deutsche Telekom AG, will sell the recycled phone, called the Moto Renew, Motorola said.

The touch- screen Motosurf will run on so-called third-generation networks used by the iPhone and Research In Motion Ltd’s BlackBerry Storm. The Motosurf will be available in several regions, including Latin America and Asia, Motorola said.
