Its form factor may be somewhat reminiscent of the Palm Pre or the Samsung Propel, but the all-new Samsung Reclaim from Sprint is arriving with a slightly different mission. It wants to save the planet, one cell phone at a time. If you want to go green, both figuratively and literally, the Reclaim could be the phone for you.
Much like the Motorola Renew that you may have heard about, the Samsung Reclaim is a phone that’s made from eco-friendly bioplastic materials. I assume this means that when it’s time for this phone to be tossed, it’s much more biodegradable and won’t be quite as harmful to the Earth. It’s made from 80% recyclable materials.
Dubbed a feature-rich messaging phone, the Samsung Reclaim boasts a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. That’ll make it easy to send out text messages and emails while on the go. Other features include an Energy Star approved charger, 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, Sprint navigation, integrated web browser, and memory expandable up to 32GB.
If you’re not digging the “Earth Green” color scheme, the Samsung Reclaim is also available in Ocean Blue. Both versions will be rolling out to all the usual channels, including Best Buy and
Radio Shack The Shack, on August 16th. Pick it up for $50 and two bucks will be sent to The Nature Conservancy’s Adopt an Acre program.
