CNET First Look
LG Remarq (Sprint)The LG Remarq is an adorable eco-friendly messaging phone at an affordable price.
>>I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a first look at the LG Remarq from Sprint. This is one of LG's first eco-friendly products. It comes with a very eco-friendly packaging as well. This is made out of 19% recyclable material and when you're ready to get rid of it, 87% of it is recyclable as well. It also apparently has low levels of polyvinyl chloride and brominated flame retardants as it even includes an energy-efficient charger with the phone. The cell phone is eco-friendly status. The phone as you can see if pretty cute and adorable. It's nice square shape here. On the front here is a very colorful display. Underneath the display you do get the typical navigation keys. On the back here is the 1.3 megapixel camera lens. Slide the phone up and you will reveal a full QWERTY keyboard, very nice and tactile, very roomy as well. Features of the phone include, of course, text and multi-media messaging along with instant messaging. You also get access to Sprint's mobile e-mail services as well as the aforementioned 1.3 megapixel camera. Other features include GPS with Sprint Navigation as well as stereo Bluetooth. It also comes with quick access to social networks like Facebook and Twitter. Because the Remarq is billed as an eco-friendly phone it is only appropriate that it comes with a carbon footprint calculator. It's called eco-calculator and it calculates your carbon consumption by measuring how many hours of miles you walk or cycle. Probably the best thing about the LG Remarq is that it is available for free with a new two-year service agreement from Sprint. I'm Nicole Lee. This has been a first look at the LG Remarq.
