New Samsung 'will appeal to green consumers'

The Samsung Blue Earth was unveiled this month

The latest phone from Samsung could be of interest to those looking to act a little greener, one article has commented.

Last week, the South Korean manufacturer unveiled the new Blue Earth handset at the GSM Association's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and Cnet's Matt Hickey was quick to point out which consumers it may appeal to.

He said those who do not always get chance to recharge their phones may love the fact the device is equipped with its own solar panel, adding consumers with environmental concerns are also likely to be impressed.

"Another group that might find this phone attractive would be those crazy outdoorsy types … [who] could extend their trips into the wilderness while remaining in contact with the outside world in case of emergencies," Mr Hickey concluded.

Samsung revealed earlier this month that the Blue Earth would be equipped with a touchscreen and is made from recycled plastic extracted from water bottles.
