Samsung Solar Phone Blue EarthIf you thought Motorola’s phone made from recycled plastic bottles was cool, wait until you see one of the new phones Samsung unveiled yesterday. It’s dubbed the “Blue Earth”, and besides being made from recycled plastic bottles, it also sports a fancy touchscreen, and is embedded with solar panels on its back for easy natural charging. The software of the phone also comes with a new “Eco Mode” meant to allow the user to get the maximum amount of energy efficiency from the device. If Blue Earth charges in the sun for 10-14 hours it will provide up to around 4 hours of talk time. Or, if you’re planning on using it mostly indoors, it can be charged with a traditional wall outlet plug too. It’s inspiring to see electronics manufacturers taking steps to create energy efficient models that can make use of alternative energy! The phone will be available in the UK later this year, with a North American release expected to follow.
