Most of the major mobile phone providers are trying to prove who is the greenest. Samsung is trying to be the “bluest”. “The reason being”, Samsung’s Sang Hoon Lee explained to faircompanies, “out in space if you look at earth, 70% of the earth’s surface is blue not green.”
Their newest eco-phone the Blue Earth Dream has integrated solar panels and uses recycled plastic and a low energy charger (Standby power: <0.03W; Current Standard: <0.2W). The phone also comes with apps that like a pedometer to help you calculate how far you’ve walked and how many trees you’ve saved by doing so.
In this video, Samsung’s Hoon Lee shows us the new phone and as well as a few future ideas like a solar charging headset.
