Blue Earth, green phone




SINGAPORE : Saving the environment is a huge cause these days, and Samsung has jumped on the green bandwagon by releasing a solar-powered phone, the GT-S7550 Blue Earth (S$498, without contract).

The 3.5G quad-band touchscreen phone touts a 3-inch display, 3.15-mega­pixel fixed-focus camera, an FM radio, a microSD card slot (up to 16GB), A-GPS, and connectivity options like WiFi and Bluetooth.

The outer shell of the phone is made from recycled plastic water bottles, and its back is adorned with solar panels. The packaging of the phone is made of recycled cardboard, with the phone holder inside doubling as a photo frame.

Documentation is spartan and the mini-USB cable is not included. You can transfer songs and pictures via a microSD card, which is troublesome since the slot is hidden behind the back cover.

The Blue Earth looks good and feels smooth on your hand with its 108x53x14mm frame but it's rather heavy at 119g.
