Nokia said on Tuesday that fuel cell based cell phones are still years away.
"It is not a technology question, it is more like a supply-chain issue at the moment," Tapani Ryhanen, head of strategic research at Nokia Research Center, said at a seminar celebrating the center's 20th anniversary.

Ryhanen said the technology itself was already available and Nokia had tested it.

"A few years you would still need to wait," he said, adding that the industry had to sort out how to supply the fuel to consumers.
