Sprint's Samsung Reclaim: Lean & Green


Are you eco-conscious? Do you care what your cell phone is made of? Sprint certainly hopes so.

Last week, at a well-attended press event at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in Manhattan, Sprint introduced the Samsung Reclaim, a phone made of 80 per cent recyclable material. Two dollars from each purchase goes to the Nature Conservancy's Adopt an Acre program.

How does it rate? Read my review at PCWorld.com.

The Green Hornet would have liked the Reclaim for his wardrobe. There are "Bubbles" that can appear on the home display for Finance, News, Local Weather, etc. Thou I need to confirm that Bubbles does not require a Sprint data plan. Easy to program a Google Voice number as an automatic text message signature and I keep the phone charged in my car with a Micro/USB cable. Robert, do you know how long the Reclaim's biodegradable corn plastic will last in a landfill?
