We’ve seen eco-friendly phones
before but the Samsung and Sprint ‘Reclaim’ is the first we’ve seen that has bona-fide parts made from corn. The bio-degradable aspects of the Samsung and Sprint Reclaim is somewhat overshadowed by the fact that you will still have an electricity sucking gadget burning a hole in the environment but, meh, baby steps…
The Samsung and Sprint Reclaim is ostensibly a standard QWERTY handset with 2 megapixel camera, stereo Bluetooth, and can boost its capacity via microSD up to 32GB. The Reclaim also has Sprint Navigation on-board. Even the packaging that the Samsung and Sprint Reclaim is eco-friendly and bio-degradable (it’s pretty big though).
The Samsung and Sprint Reclaim will be available for $50 (after $80 of instant and mail-in rebates) from Sprint, Best Buy and Radio Shack.
