The Samsung Seek is Sprint's newest messaging cell phone. Available in three colors--scarlet red, cool blue, or fantasy pink--the Seek costs $29.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate.
The Seek is part of a new trial recycling campaign from Sprint and Samsung. Customers who buy the blue or pink Seek can use the phone's packaging to send back their old old wireless phones, batteries, accessories, and data cards with a postage-paid paper mailing label. The red model will include the traditional recycling envelope, so the companies can track performance of the new recycling program.
Aside from the green angle, the Seek is a slider messaging phone with support for threaded text messaging, instant messaging, and integration of such social networking sites as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. The phone also has a 2.6-inch QVGA touch screen.
