Is It Green? Motorola's Eco-Friendlier Cordless Phone

Motorola's new D10 and D11 cordless phones definitely have one thing going for them -- they're better looking than the cordless phones we grew up with.

They're also, according to Motorola, greener than your average cordless phone.

Now, even though the cell reception in our apartment stinks, we haven't used a landline in years ... But, maybe this would be a good option for our parents?

Here are the green things the D10s and D11s have going for them (from a Motorola press release):


  • Users are able to activate the intelligent 'eco mode' which uses less battery power and increases talk-time.

  • Materials used in the phones comprise at least 20% recycled material.

Here is our question: Rather than buying a new cordless phone, wouldn't it be greener to eventually ditch the landline altogether and just rely on cell phones (which most of us are charging and using 24/7 anyway)?

Do you still use a landline? When your current phone kicks the bucket, will you buy a new one or just rely completely on your cell phone?
