Earth-loving Samsung Replenish is now available from Sprint

All of our earth-loving readers probably remember the announcement of Sprint’s Samsung Replenish, Sprint’s first eco-friendly Android smartphone. As a reminder, the release date was announced to be on May 8th, and the device is now available for purchase from Sprint. Built with 82% recyclable material, and at a price of $49.99 on a 2-year contract, this hippie Android device is not only good on the environment, but also on your wallet.

Samsung Replenish Specifications:

  • 2.8-inch QVGA TFT Display
  • Android 2.2
  • 600 MHz Qualcomm processor
  • 256 of RAM / 512 of ROM
  • Full QWERTY keyboard
  • 2 MP Camera
  • 1160 mAh battery

As you may recall, the specs on this device are not impressive at all, but it does have its benefits. Aside from the low price, this device is actually good for an outdoor lifestyle. There is an optional backdoor with a solar panel, which would allow you to charge the battery (which we can call small or “energy efficient”) whether you are next to your window or climbing the Grand Canyon. Sprint is also offering the Green ID Pack, with a series of tools that would aid you in living a “greener” life.

Sprint is waving the $10 premium data charge if you purchase their first eco-friendly Android phone. This means that getting this device would save you $240 dollars through the duration of your 2-year contract. You can also probably save some bucks from being able to use the solar charging feature, not to mention that the initial price of the device is already low.

This is no super phone, but it could offer some benefits for those users that do not require too much power. Personally, if I was using my smartphone only for e-mail, social networking, document editing, and such small tasks, I wouldn’t mind having a cheaper alternative like this. Plus, solar panels and fee waivers are a great additional incentive. What do you guys say, are you signing up for this tree-hugging phone?

    Great phone, just wish it had a full touch screen instead of the blackberry style keypad. I do alot of psone emulation on it with fpse, and most games are very smooth, so I really can’t complain about performance. It is a must to root this and remove the sprint bloatware because the battery life is awful otherwise.
