Samsung announced today that its latest green phone, the Restore SPH-M750, is now available to Sprint customers for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement, after a $50 mail-in rebate. The handset features a slider design with a full keyboard for easy messaging. To reflect its Earth-friendly image, the Restore sports a bright green (aka, limeade) casing, but you can also get it in a dark hue called midnight.
The Restore, which was introduced in April, is made of 27 percent recycled material and includes low levels of environmentally hazardous materials. What's more, it has a low-power charger, its packaging is 100 percent recyclable, and you'll have to go online to find a user manual. And when you move on to another phone, you can recycle up to 84 percent of the Restore's parts.
Features include a 2-megapixel camera/camcorder, stereo Bluetooth, an MP3 player, and support for various Sprint services (Sprint Navigation, Sprint TV, Sprint Family Locator, and Sprint Football Live). We'll have a review when we get a model in house.
