Samsung’S Blue Earth Phone Hopes That Your Pockets Let the Sun Shine in

Samsung is set to unveil an eco-friendly cellular phone at the 2009 Mobile World Congress. Called “Blue Earth”, the phone packs a number of environment friendly features, such as a solar panel on the back of the phone and an app called eco walk that tells you how many trees you’ll save if you walk to your destination instead of driving or riding a vehicle.

Maybe Greenpeace can host competitions for the most number of trees saved based on that app, something like “Eco Walk Around The World: Winner gets a Hummer” . Maybe not. Other features of the Blue Earth include the phones’ shell which is made out of recycled plastic, and an “eco-mode” or low-power consumption mode.

I’m pretty sure that the phone will also have a charger like all other phones, unless Samsung expects us to put the phone on top of our heads or have it face down on our palms while we’re walking around, aiming for the top score on eco walk.
