Showing their commitment to the green movement, Sprint has announced the Samsung Reclaim to become available this month.
This QWERTY-equipped slider is made of 80% recyclable materials which will definitely bold well with environmentalists. Apart from that, it Reclaim also features a 2-megapixel camera with video capture capabilities, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP support, GPS, and microSDHC support of up to 32GB in capacity. If those features aren't enough to get you excited for the Reclaim, then maybe its $49.99 price (2-year contract after $30 instant rebate, $50 mail-in rebate) will do the trick. It will be released on August 16th, and will be available in green and blue colored variations. The full press release can be found here.
Sprint also announced that $2 of the proceeds will go to The Nature Conservancy’s Adopt an Acre program and their commitment to reduce paper usage by 30% in the next 5 years. To find out more about Sprint's green initiatives, you can head on over here.
Meanwhile, Samsung, for their part, is no stranger to the green movement. They’ve unveiled two solar-powered phones before, the Blue Earth and E1107 Crest, and eco-friendly phones such as the E200 Eco edition, F268 and W510. Unfortunately, none of them have made it to the North American market making the Reclaim the first ever green Samsung phone to be commercially released in the region, not to mention an affordable and full-featured one at that.
