Samsung Blue Earth, Mobile Phones Go Solar!


More ecological innovations, today courtesy of the good people at Samsung, who have just unveiled the Samsung Blue Earth mobile phone to the world at the Mobile World Congress hosted in Barcelona. This innovative new handset features a case made from 100% recycled plastic (PCM) as per similar eco-handsets (i.e. the Motorola Renew), it contains no toxic fire retardants and is the first mobile phone on the market to feature a solar power cell on the reverse of the handset.

It also has a number of natty features including backlight saving, energy efficient charging and a digital pedometer which converts energy savings made from walking into an 'eco-walk' calculation which shows you how many trees you have saved!

All credit to Mr.Shin, Samsung's Executive Vice President for pioneering the green cause and renewable energy sources in technology:

"We are committed to achieving the highest eco-status with our customers and business partners by providing the best eco-products and promoting eco-activities.”

Onwards & upwards,
