Nokia Puts an Axe to Their Fuel Cell Development

In the wake of Guinness World Records recognizing Toshiba’s Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) as the world’s smallest, Nokia has announced that they are scrapping their development plans of their own fuel cell powered handsets. Nokia claims that the technology isn’t “mature” enough yet. The company says they are only putting the development on the backburner stating “Fuel-cell technology is promising and Nokia continues to follow it closely,” Says Nokia’s Matti Naskali.

Eight months ago Nokia announced its commitment to fuel cell powered cellphones, but times have defiantly changed. Due to the current air regulations against carrying Methanol on a commuter aircraft without protective materials would hinder the usability and transportation of the phones on flights. Nokia also claimed supply chain limits on Methanol.
