Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. unveiled the solar powered full-touch screen phone "Blue Earth," alongside Samsung’s vision for environmental sustainability. It will be showcased at Mobile World Congress 2009 for the first time.

Samsung says that Blue Earth is the first solar powered full-touch screen phone. By charging with the solar panel located on the back of the phone, users can generate enough electronic power to call anytime anywhere.

Blue Earth is made from recycled plastic called PCM, which is extracted from water bottles, helping to reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions in the manufacturing process. The device, including charger, is free from harmful substances such as Brominated Flame Retardants, Beryllium, and Phthalate.

T Blue Earth comes with a unique user interface, including simple to set screen brightness, backlight duration, and Bluetooth to an energy-efficient mode. Through an "eco walk" function, a user can count their steps with an in-built pedometer, calculating how much CO2 emissions have been reduced by walking as opposed to motor transport.
