Eco-friendly Samsung Restore coming to Virgin Mobile

The green-themed Samsung Restore is back, this time heading to Virgin Mobile.

The Samsung Restore for Virgin Mobile

With Earth Day just around the corner, Sprint and Samsung are teaming up to offer the eco-friendly Samsung Restore on Virgin Mobile USA, a Sprint-owned prepaid brand. The Restore first made its debut on Sprint last June.

The messaging phone features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 2-megapixel camera and camcorder, Bluetooth, e-mail and texting support, Google Maps, and Virgin Navigator. It's 4.6 inches tall by 2.1 inches wide by 0.6 inch deep and it weighs 3.7 ounces. The Restore has a 2.4-inch QVGA screen with support for 262,000 colors.

As for its Earth-friendliness, the Restore is 83 percent recyclable and its packaging is composed of 100 percent recycled plastic. Virgin Mobile's parent, Sprint, claims that the Restore's packaging uses nearly half the plastic of the standard Virgin Mobile plastic sheath.

The Samsung Restore will be available beginning April 18 for $79.99, without a contract.
