AT&T, Samsung Showcase Green Cell Phone

Samsung of late has been one of the more active cell phone manufacturers developing green-themed mobile phones. Its latest exercise in this regard is the new Evergreen slider design with a QWERTY keyboard for easier messaging. It is being carried by AT&T and will be available this month for around $30 after select conditions are met.

With regards to being green, the Samsung Evergreen is built with 70% recycled post-consumer plastics. It reportedly meets RoHS standards (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive), including being free of PVC, BFR and Beryllium, and is powered by an Energy Star qualified energy efficient charger. Its packaging is made from 80 percent recycled post-consumer paper, uses soy ink and is 100 percent recyclable. Included on the phone is eco-oriented wallpaper and ringtones.

There’s also easy integration into social media networks as well.
