Dialed In 91: Samsung goes green

On this week's Dialed In podcast, we discuss the eco-friendly Samsung Reclaim and Microsoft and Nokia strike up an interesting deal.

Samsung and Sprint have jumped on the green bandwagon: they launched a new eco-friendly phone last week, the Samsung Reclaim. Speaking of green, some handset manufacturers and carriers think we're rolling in money and are charging some jaw-dropping prices for their devices. We're not quite sure what they're thinking, especially after a Gartner study finds that North Americans pay more for cell phone service than other parts of the world. We've got all this and more on this week's Dialed In podcast.
