The $6,000+ Solar-Powered Phone

The two biggest problems with iPhones? They're too expensive, and the battery dies too fast. Tag Heuer is here to solve... one of those problems. The Tag Heuer Meridiist Infinite is a smartphone with a freakin' solar panel in the screen, which means it never needs to be charged. Well, as long as you don't keep it in your pocket all day, or if you've got a solar lamp or those special UV tanning pants they sell in SkyMall. There's no specifics on price yet, but given that the regular ol' Meridiist retails for roughly $6,000, be prepared to dig deep if you want photovoltaics in the thing you use for Tinder.
