Motorola's unlocked A45 Eco ready to green you up

Chris Ziegler

We'd originally though this one was a South American special, but Motorola has now started selling the MOTOCUBO A45 as the "Eco" through its North American direct-to-consumer store. It's a low-end device -- don't expect Android here -- but $160 really isn't bad for a full QWERTY slider with a 2 megapixel cam, 3.5mm headphone jack, microSD support up to 32GB, and a QVGA display, especially consider that it comes unlocked and unbranded. The "Eco" label comes from the fact that the phone is made from recycled and corn-based materials -- not unlike the Renew -- so if you're in the market for a text-centric backup phone, this might just be an interesting option that won't keep you up at night thinking about the environmental destruction you've caused. It's available right now.
