Motorola goes green with the Citrus

The Motorola Citrus may be the first ever eco-friendly Android handset. We get our hands on it to show you how it looks.

SAN FRANCISCO -- The Motorola Citrus is just as green as the Android logo, or at least that's what Motorola wants you to believe. The Citrus is getting touted as one of a few eco-friendly Android phones, as it is made out of 25% post consumer plastic and is PVC and BFR free. The overall feel of the phone is that of a simple entry-level smartphone, and indeed that's what it is. It ships with Android 2.1 and has only EV-DO Rev. 0. Other details of the phone are a 3-inch QVGA display, a 3 megapixel camera, and the usual GPS, WiFi, and stereo Bluetooth. Though we don't yet know the price of the phone, we suspect it'll be pretty affordable. Here's a more in-depth look at the Citrus with video and photos.
