I'm sure having a solar panel on my iPhone will do a lot of good. It's either in my pocket or against my face, and usually indoors. The sun isn't shining too brightly inside my pocket, nor against my face, and not inside, unless I hold the phone up to a south-facing window.

BTW, there already are some devices with built in mini solar panels that work pretty good. Casio G-Shock watches are a good example. I have had mine for 6 years, and it can run without direct sunlight for months. They also do not require setting the time since they are synced with an atomic clock signal! It still keeps perfect time and runs great.

Sunshine? What's that?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

it only takes light for a solar cell to react. artificial or real. doesnt matter =i. the point of this wouldnt be to fully charge the phone. as that would be a *HUGE* cell. it is to merely create a substrate that will continually help charge the phone when not docked.hence relieving the battery from all its burden. hopefully in turn giving all those battery complainers to complain about something elsekillall Terminal

I am not against anything that would help extend battery life. However, in terms of the cost factor, I can think of a number of things I would rather have Apple do to the iPhone before including a solar cell in the mix.
