LG just announced a solar-energy based phone for the Korea market, and I would expect that would be arriving in the U.S. soon as well
Iowa City, IA (PRWEB) October 22, 2009
The cell phone industry is going green through a variety of new products and Iowa City, Iowa-based Low Cost Cells says many of these environmentally-friendly devices are now available.
"Earlier this year, Samsung released the Reclaim for Sprint," said President Nate Schmidt. "It's made out of recyclable plant-based materials and is a great device for customers who want to use less energy."
The Reclaim and its charger meet Greenpeace International standards, and Sprint has announced it will donate $2 for every device sold to the Nature Conservatory. Right now, Low Cost Cells offers the Reclaim in two colors, ocean blue and earth green.
Other environmentally-friendly phones sold at Low Cost Cells include Motorola's Renew, which is offered with T-Mobile's wireless network, and Nokia's Intrigue on the Verizon wireless network.
"The plastic parts of the Renew are made from recycled water bottles," said Schmidt. "It's been called the world's first carbon-neutral cell phone."
The Intrigue, meanwhile, which comes in either pink or silver, boasts a charger that uses a low amount of energy.
"The Intrigue also has a feature that lets its owner know when it's time to unplug the charger, and that helps save energy as well," Schmidt said. More eco-friendly devices are expected to reach the U.S. market soon, Schmidt added.
"LG just announced a solar-energy based phone for the Korea market, and I would expect that would be arriving in the U.S. soon as well," he said.
Low Cost Cells is an online distributor of cell phones for major cell phone carriers across the United States. The company's goal is to provide the best value and service in the cell phone industry.
