Excerpt: With green living very much in the public consciousness, green gadgets are becoming more popular. Exactly what that concept means can vary–for some it’s as simple as a device that uses less power–but manufacturers are applying the label to everything from televisions to cameras. For cell phones, the idea of green has only come in the last few months. The first such handset to land in the United States was the Motorola Renew W233 for T-Mobile.
Excerpt: Green, or eco-friendly, cellular phones have been around for at least a year, but most of them use 2004-era technology.

The 2.4-inch, 320 x 240 pixel resolution display offers crisp images and accurate colors.

Excerpt: Samsung's Reclaim is, as it might sound, a phone that has been made with "reclaimed" materials. So it is something you want to be seen with, or something you should send back to the dump? We took a closer look. From an environmental standpoint the most interesting thing about the Reclaim is that it's made from corn. You know the stuff that grows in fields and is great on the BBQ. Of course this isn't a phone that you can munch on when you're waiting for a call.
Pros: Eco credentials, easy to use, basic and simple
