Sprint and Samsung Mobile USA have just announced the Samsung Reclaim M560, touted as “the first phone in the US constructed from eco-friendly bio-plastic materials.”
The Reclaim is a messaging phone made from 80% recyclable materials and coming in two colors versions: Earth Green and Ocean Blue.
The phone’s features include a sliding QWERTY keyboard, QVGA display, Sprint Navigation with Search, access to corporate and personal email, Stereo Bluetooth, Web browser, 2MP camera with video recording, and MicroSDHC card support (up to 32GB).
Samsung Reclaim has no paper-made user manual. Instead, a virtual manual will be accessible at this address.
Sprint will sell the Reclaim starting August 16, for $49.99 with a 2-yr contract agreement (after a $30 instant rebate and a $50 mail-in rebate). According to Sprint, “$2 of the proceeds will benefit The Nature Conservancy’s Adopt an Acre program, which supports land conservation across the United States and protects some of the world’s most beautiful and important natural habitats.”
The Samsung Reclaim will also be available at Wal-Mart, but only starting September.
Apart from announcing the new Samsung phone, Sprint has also unveiled several environmental initiatives. For example, the carrier plans to reduce paper usage by 30% during the next 5 years. To learn more about Sprint’s green plans, you can visit this website.
