Samsung unveils solar-powered cell phone

Samsung Electronics today rolled out a solar-powered cell phone called the "Blue Earth." The phone will be a touch-screen phone without physical buttons, like the iPhone. The solar panel is on the back of the handset. 

The Blue Earth phone will be made from the plastic of recycled water bottles and contains no Brominated Flame Retardants, Beryllium or Phthalate, according to Samsung. 

Even the packaging is politically correct, and made from recycled paper. The charger -- for when or where the sun doesn't shine -- uses only 0.03 watts on standby.

Here's the company's press release.
