Samsung’s Green Blue Earth Phone

Samsung pulled out a really stops this year in terms of innovation, as well as one of the most unusual of phones in its lineup is a blue Earth, in which the company bills as "the first solar-powered full contact tel. This solar panel on the back, and comes with several environmentally conscious applications, including environmental walk calculator, which uses a built-in pedometer to see how many steps you have taken - and then calculates how much CO2 emissions you saved the walk instead of driving.

Even the packaging the phone clean (of paper) and the charger (when there is not enough sun to power the device) estimated 5-star energy efficient and uses less than .03 W standby power.

Blue Earth PCM from recycled plastics, derived from a bottle of water, and, according to Samsung, this is "free from harmful substances such as brominated flame retardants, beryllium, and phthalate." Kind of makes the rest of there phones we use to have this evil-sounding things in them.
