AT&T going Solar in New York City

AT&T plans to set up 25 solar-powered charging stations around New York City, reports The New York Times. The stations resemble helicopter rotors with three blade-like solar cells perched atop a tall pole. The stations will be able to accommodate up to six devices at a time, and will include a mix of ports that are compatible with Android devices as well as BlackBerries, iPhones, and Windows Phones.

Though the chargers are being offered by AT&T, anyone can use them. The stations will remain in one spot for three to four weeks at a time, and will then be moved elsewhere in the city.
