An old Samsung handset could be traded in for the greener option

Consumers looking for a greener option having recycled mobile phones may be interested in a new article.

In a piece for Mobile Burn, Marc Lynde looked at the Samsung M560 Reclaim and explained that as an entry-level, eco-friendly device it is a welcome surprise to see many shared smartphone traits.

Partially composed of bio-plastics, the reviewer announced the model is still "sturdy in all respects" and boasts a slide-out qwerty keyboard that is flanked by a number of other dedicated buttons.

Available in two shades, Earth Green and Ocean Blue, it is noted the device has a clear environmentally-friendly demographic in mind and also offers a 3.5mm headphone socket, microSD support, 2.4-inch display and a two-megapixel camera.

"I hope this phone is a sign of good things yet to come for entry-level devices," Mr Lynde concluded. "As a BlackBerry user I will admit that the Reclaim provides users the smartphone experience at a fraction of the cost."

Samsung recently announced its first Google Android-powered device - the i7500 Galaxy.
