Samsung has recently launched a new phone named “Blue-Earth” which takes mobile phones to a completely new era. The phone is powered by solar panels placed on the back of the phone. Samsung says that the panel generates "enough electronic power to call anytime, anywhere."
Apart from getting charged by green energy, the phone is made from plastic recycled from trashed water bottles, thereby restricting a large number of water bottles from polluting the environment. "Eco" mode efficiently adjusts screen brightness, backlight duration and Bluetooth usage, while an "eco walk" app / built-in pedometer tells you how much CO2 emission you've saved by walking instead of driving.
The design looks fantastic too. Like the iPhone, Blue-Earth will be a touch-screen phone without physical buttons. Pricing has yet been confirmed, but it's scheduled to hit the UK by the second half of 2009.
