Google’s Phone Booths will be Powered by Solar Energy

01/09/2010

Google has taken an all-new approach to promote its new Google Voice feature inside Gmail by constructing several retro-styled British phone booths that will offer adorable, green and most-importantly free calls. Modeled on a 1957 vintage example, the phone booths will be installed in high-traffic areas.

The phone booths will include a solar panel on the outside, which will help power the booth. Though the booths will offer free calls, there’ll also be a 20-minute limit on phone calls to discourage youngsters from occupying the booths for hours.
