SPOTLIGHT: Samsung makes bigger commitment to fuel cells


The use of fuel cells have been talked about for several years now, and it looks like South Korea's Samsung will be the first to use them. The handset maker is announcing plans for constructing prototype handsets powered by fuel cells, and the announcement is one of the largest publicly disclosed commitments to the technology by a major vendor in years. Samsung signed an exclusive deal with MTI MicroFuel Cells to jointly develop fuel cells for mobile phones. Samsung is spending about $1 million in the effort. By converting fuel directly into energy through an electrochemical reaction, fuel cells are advertised to provide better battery efficiency to power high-end devices. Article
