Samsung goes green with the Reclaim

The Samsung Reclaim is more than just a green gimmick.

The Samsung Reclaim is green in more ways than one Josh Miller/CNET

Samsung rarely misses a trend, and you usually can count on the company to jump on a movement early. Just consider the concept of the green gadget. Though the Motorola Renew W233 remains the only eco-friendly phone with a major U.S. carrier, Samsung wants in on the green game, too.

Like the Renew, the new Samsung Reclaim SPH-M560 for Sprint also is made from recycled plastic and comes in a box that's made from recycled paper. Yet, the Reclaim goes a step further by offering more features than the Renew and a full QWERTY keyboard. On the whole, it's a decent phone even if we had a few performance quibbles. You can get it starting Thursday for $49.99 with a two-year contract.
