It's an Android smartphone that uses "conflict-free" materials mined in DR Congo, is assembled in China but the company has established a Workers Welfare Fund, etc.
I did read the other day that the folks assembling it are, in some cases, working up to 60 hour weeks... so I have to question, how ethical is "ethical," exactly? The company themselves have admitted it's not ideal (and that's putting it mildly), but they say they are committed to a long-term relationship with their Chinese partners that will bring about cultural changes and significantly improve their worker's conditions over time. Let's hope so. Meanwhile, high (and significantly worse) levels of worker abuse continue at Apple supplier Foxconn.
They have some interesting partners in the venture, including e-waste recycler Closing the Loop.
