The Sony Ericsson Elm is a new member of the manufacturer´s Greenheart family and a feature rich, 3G and Wi-Fi capable device equipped with A-GPS, aimed at eco-conscious people willing to show their concern about planet Earth without sinking into a fiscal coma in the process. Being a mainstream feature phone, however, the Sony Ericsson Elm faces tough competition from other similarly priced rivals, including several eco-friendly cell phones like the Samsung Blue Earth. We have mentioned on many occasions that the company has taken a different, even if not exactly unique approach to addressing modern day environmental concerns. Sony Ericsson does not really believe that solar panel technology is mature enough to deliver any results of conceivable significance in practise. So, instead of releasing (otherwise nicely looking) devices with arguably effective solar panels, the manufacturer has focused on getting better at using recycled materials, decreasing harmful emissions during manufacturing, providing energy saving features and accessories like highly efficient chargers.

Sony Ericsson's Elm aims to woo eco-conscious folk with its green credentials, but many will view its 'eco-friendly' apps as mere gimmickry. Thankfully, the handset is lifted from the compost heap by a competent camera, decent music features and useful GPS integration, as well as easy-to-access social-networking widgets. But its slow user interface and proprietary port make the Elm feel like a compromise.
