Keeping an eye on the Mobile World Congress show currently underway in Barcelona (mainly because I’m wanting release information on the Nokia N97, late May/early June apparently as reported by Phonedog.com) I have seen a new Green Phone that Samsung are due to release later this year in Europe.
The handset is made from recycled bottles, and is powered by a solar panel located located on the rear. It will come with an energy efficient “Eco-Mode”, and an “Eco-Walk” function which will utilise an inbuilt pedometer to calculate how much CO2 emissions have been saved by walking as opposed to driving. Of course the packaging will also be as minimal as possible, and what there is will also be made utilising recycled materials. The Blue Earth will have a touchscreen interface, as well as a special energy efficient Bluetooth capability. Further details can be found here.
