iHazard: No Green Features in iPhone

A couple of months ago, Steve Jobs claimed that Apple would soon be ahead of most of its competitors on environmental issues.

Recently, Greenpeace has started examining iPhone in its Research Laboratories in the United Kingdom. Analysis reveal that the iPhone contains toxic brominated compounds and hazardous PVC.



The report, "Missed call: the iPhone's hazardous chemicals", which details the findings of the research, can be downloaded from the Greenpease website.

Not only has Apple forgotten people about disabilities when designing iPhone, but now it turns out that the device has environmental issues as well.

Apple is definitely behind the competition. For example, Nokia is totally PVC free, Motorola and Sony Ericsson have already products on the market with BFR free components.
