Motorola recently received a patent on a technology for combining an LCD screen and a solar cell on a wireless device. The conductive film on new solar cells is the same as the material used on new flat panel LCD televisions, enabling a convergence of sorts while potentially addressing the longstanding problem of cell phone battery life. The technology is not yet fully developed nor is it cost-effective for cell phone manufacturers, however, we may soon be able to charge our phones while soaking up the sun.
