Samsung Also Goes Green!!

Samsung has become the latest mobile phone manufacturer to unveil eco-friendly phones… and to show that its commited to the environment, the international cellphone manufacturer has released not one, but two eco-products.

After Dell's Bamboo cased eco-desktop, LG's eco-friendly monitor, Apple's solar escapade and Intuit's solar Concept phone among others, Samsung has also decided to launch its own range of green products.

The Samsung W510 is made from bio-plastics which are made using materials from natural corn. In making the model as well the environment has been maintained as the prime, so no heavy metals like lead, mercury or cadmium have been used in the construction of this cellphone.

The other phone on display, the Samsung F268, is more focussed on green "use" rather than construction. The model does not contain Brominated Flame Retardants (BFR) or Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC), which can contaminate the environment on disposal.

The F268 also has an alarm to alert the user when the device has reached full charge. Trying their hand to save some electricity, isn’t it? Other specifications however are a mystery.

“Now we are trying not only to launch more environmentally-conscious products with more renewable material and less energy consuming, but also to expand proactively set up a phone recycling system" said Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Business.

However, the W510 will be launched in Korea while the F268 will premier in China later this month. No plans for a launch in India as of now. Boo Hoo Hoo..... Why Why Why?? We also want to buy snazzy cellphones that save the environment.... Serious!!

Samsung is striving to continue to be a strong corporate citizen that contributes to environmental --Geechung Choi
