Samsung Blue Earth

 

The Samsung Blue Earth (unlocked GSM world phone; U.S. pricing not available) is the latest in a new batch of ecofriendly phones, including Samsung's own Reclaim handset. However, the Blue Earth--available in Western Europe for 300 euros now, and in...

Made from recycled materials; uses solar energy ; Smooth browser interface

Little documentation or equipment included ; Small display

The first ecofriendly touchscreen phone succeeds at Web browsing and videos, but falters at other multimedia tasks.

Samsung Blue Earth (unlocked)

 

As it does with most trends, Samsung is pursuing eco-friendly cell phones with vigor. It already gave us the Samsung Reclaim, and now we finally have a chance to review the Samsung Blue Earth. Forgive us if we're a bit excited, but Samsung has been...

The Samsung Blue Earth has a stylish design and a functional midrange feature set. Green fans will appreciate the solar panels that charge the phone

The Samsung Blue Earth's small display feels rather crowded. It lacks a full keyboard and call quality isn't top-notch

With its eco-friendly design and spiffy solar panels, the Samsung Blue Earth is more than just a gimmick; it's also an appealing cell phone with character.

Samsung S7550 Blue Earth review: Calling Captain Planet

 

A blue earth it is. We mean there's no need to tell you our home planet is not quite in the pink. So, before you go on reading, you might want to turn off the lights and the telly, and go pick up a wind turbine and a...

Solar panel for battery charging ; GSM 850/900/1800/1900 MHz, GPRS/EDGE class 12, UMTS 900/2100, HSDPA 3.6Mbps ; Commendable build quality ; 3" capacitive TFT touchscreen, WQVGA resolution (240 x 400 pixels) ; 180MB onboard storage, microSD card slot...

Could've been slightly thinner ; The screen is poorly visible in the sun ; 3 MP fixed focus camera is outdated ; Grip and handling compromised by the solar panel ; No USB cable in the retail package

OK, now seriously. Maybe it's good to know you're not the only one using recycled paper, composting your garbage and flushing the toilet responsibly. Samsung are perhaps really trying to encourage the effort. The S7550 Blue Earth is a gadget that gives...

Samsung Blue Earth S7550 Review

 

The Samsung Blue Earth S7550 has been designed with our environment in mind - it´s body is made from recycled plastic entirely, while its back hosts a solar panel that extends the phone battery life in a eco-friendly way. Is the handset THE cell phone...

Review: Samsung S7550 Blue Earth solar phone review

 

Samsung's S7550 Blue Earth is one of the first cell phones from a major manufacturer to feature a solar panel for recharging. Todd takes this beautiful and eco-friendly device out for a day in the sun to see how it performs in this review.

I think this phone is brilliant and it shows how much samsung wishes to help the environment and the issue of global warming. Whomever wishes to criticize this device definately doesn't care for the future of their children and others, not to mention...

Samsung Blue Earth Cell Phone Review

 

An eco-friendly phone? Now, isn't that a bit too much? No, according to Samsung who say they have made the phone out of recycled materials, especially plastic water bottles (and hence the name Blue Earth)The first thing to write about this phone would...

The solar panels charge to charge the phone, Eco friendly theme

Small display, Call quality could have been better, Cramped display

This phone isn’t the one which is meant for the masses. There are solar panels at the back of the device and this would add to the cost which would make a hole in your pocket. This phone will be costly and offers no value for the money you. Samsung...

Something that we haven't seen before is a phone with a solar panel - and the Samsung Blue Earth has a relatively large panel on the back. Yes, we know you can get solar chargers for mobiles and a few manufacturers have announced concept designs, but...

Samsung Blue Earth

 

While the world goes green, Samsung is going blue. But can a solar phone made from recycled crap compete?

Touchscreen cell phones are popping up everywhere these days, and as the marketplace reaches a saturation point, companies are looking for ways to innovate this developing technology. Enter Samsung, who has been firing off a bevy of new phones lately,...

Smooth browser interface, made from recycled materials, uses solar energy ;

Small display, little documentation or equipment included ;

The Samsung Blue Earth proves that a solid, ecofriendly touchscreen phone can work. Ironically, the problems with the phone, such as the limited music player, the lack of support, and the puzzling on-screen keyboard, have nothing to do with being green
