The solar-powered Samsung Blue Earth handheld was finally released to the public today--in Sweden, at least. The touch-screen phone with the solar charger on the back is also set to launch in other countries soon; they are France, Germany, Austria, Italy, and Portugal, just to name a few.

We first saw this eco-friendly phone at GSMA 2009 and then our colleagues over at CNET Asia finally got their hands on it at CommunicAsia 2009. We're actually getting a review unit of this phone for ourselves soon, so we'll let you know if it truly does live up to its green promise.
