The new Reclaim cell phone – courtesy of Samsung and Sprint – will launch on August 16th. Billed as an “eco-conscious phone, at $49.99 it features a case made of 40% corn-based biodegradable plastic. Another eco-friendly feature – when the phone’s fully charged, the charger lights up, reminding you to unplug it and save electricity.
Available in Blue Ocean and Green Earth colors (who thought of those names?), it features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, e-mail and Web access, a 2.0 megapixel camera and GPS navigation. But there’s a tiny catch. The low price applies after a $50 mail-in rebate.
An eco-friendly overachiever, Samsung Reclaim from Sprint is designed with environmentally-responsible components and fully recyclable packaging, making it the perfect wireless phone for the eco-conscious consumer.
