iPhone launch targeted


Greenpeace
is planning to protest against Apple's iPhone launch in Europe this week. The Green group is demanding that the U.K. version of the iPhone should be free from the toxic chemicals it contains, including its brominated flame retardants.

Last month, the charity attacked Apple for failing to make "early progress" with the iPhone toward the company's stated goals for eco friendliness. Apple claims that all components used in the iPhone comply with the European Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive.

However, whatever action Greenpeace takes, the iPhone is going to have a rougher reception in Europe where users will be less interested in an expensive mobile phone which cannot manage 3G.
