Is there such thing as a solar powered phone?

I have seen cell phone batteries with solar cells in them, but not in a while. So solar powered phones exist. There is also a pocket-sized product called Solio which opens up into a fan of solar panels and contains a backup battery and power charging cords for cellphones. You just have to remember to leave it in the sun while talking on the phone, since there probably isn't much sunlight in your pocket. (It also comes with a plug-in charging cord, but if you're on the grid, what's the point?)
