Samsung Evergreen for AT&T is just as eco-friendly as it sounds

Updated ·1 min read

It's not going to woo power-users... except possibly people who power-use the environment. Okay, that came out weird, but the point is that Samsung's new Evergreen for AT&T is a pretty simple sliding QWERTY candybar with an emphasis on going easy on Planet Earth, starting with the fact that the phone itself is made from 70 percent post-consumer recycled plastics and going on to include a box crafted from 80 percent recycled paper. It's not exactly a nod to the environment, but it's also cool to see that Sammy will donate $1 to Cell Phones for Soldiers (up to a maximum of $100 grand) for every Evergreen sold. Besides the full keyboard, you get a 2.4-inch display, 2 megapixel cam, Bluetooth 2.1, dual-band 3G, and support for AT&T Navigator -- not bad, we suppose, for the $29.99 AT&T wants on contract after $50 rebate. It'll be available starting November 7.
