New Bamboo Android Phone

This isn’t a bamboo case for your Android.

This is an Android phone built with a bamboo back.

Here’s a closer look:

From engadget:

This is the ADzero, a smartphone with a four-year old, organically grown bamboo unibody shell. It was designed by British student Kieron-Scott Woodhouse, a final-year product design student at Middlesex University. After his concept designs were spotted online, the 23 year old was approached to help design a real device. The Android-powered phone is built with an eye on sustainability, but isn’t scrimping on the technical: its packing a camera with a reportedly unique ring-flash that encircles the lens.

Beautiful, right?

I wonder how practical it is to have a smartphone built to last, when the insides will be outdated in a matter of months?

    Well, let’s consider that when most of us buy new phones, we’re stuck with them until our contract is up for renewal in two years. Therefore, we want something sturdy enough to last us two years. I imagine bamboo back will hold up a lot better than plastic or glass, though I’m not sure how they would compare in weight. I would personally the bamboo be stained (like, black or something) instead of uncolored, though.

      I think the beauty of bamboo is that it’s both durable and lightweight. As for the colors, I do believe they are planing on releasing a few different shades.

    It is entirely practical to build something to last. If you are on a budget, sometimes you have to keep using a gadget for as long as you can rather than replacing it even if the technology has moved on.
