Samsung have announced an eco-friendly mobile phone that has been made from a recycled plastic called PCM, which is recycled from plastic water bottles. The handset and phone charger are completely free of toxic nasties, such as Brominated Flame Retardants, Beryllium and Phthalate. The phone is fitted with a solar panel on the back of the phone, which is designed to ensure you always have enough power to make a phone call.
The phone itself has a large touchscreen interface. The bluetooth settings, screen brightness and screen backlight settings can all be changed to conserve energy using an “eco-mode”. Details of the specifications are due to be released prior to being available in the second half of 2009.
