The Device Renewal Forum today detailed its plans to create a series of standards that can be applied to refurbished and recycled cell phones and other electronics. The organization hopes that by setting minimum levels of value given to cell phones that are turned in at the point of sale, and standards for functionality and quality for resold phones, that consumers will be more apt to turn in old devices rather than store them or discard them. Goals include ensuring that only quality devices make it back into the market, creating a process for certifying renewed devices, and applying a label to certified, renewed devices that can be trusted by consumers to show that those devices still have value. Charter members of the Device Renewal Forum include Sprint, eRecyclingCorps, Brightstar, ModusLink Global Solutions, and the CDMA Development Group.
