Sony Ericsson is giving heavy texters and Microsoft Mobile Office users the option to go green when they make their next mobile phone purchase.

The mobile phone manufacturer launched the Sony Ericsson Aspen on February 2 hoping the device would appeal to eco-friendly business users who want a clear conscience.

"Sony Ericsson Aspen TM is the business phone with a conscience, perfect for any consumer or company who want to make a green choice in their daily work life," said Quentin Cordier, Global Marketing Manager, Sony Ericsson.

"An affordable GreenHeart phone with the latest version of Windows Phone, the Sony Ericsson Aspen has a rich user interface and powerful productivity tools. But it's not all about work, stay in touch with the fun parts of life with Media Browser and PlayNow, with simple access to social networks and quick and easy access to media files. Find the fun with a-GPS, Google Maps and snap pictures with the 3.2megapixel camera."

The handset will be available in selected markets in the second quarter of 2010.
