Samsung Replenish stocks up Boost Mobile's collection


We saw the environmentally conscious Samsung Replenish on Sprint just over six months ago, but Boost's liking those green credentials so much, it's decided to get the Samsung Gingerbread handset on board. 82 percent recyclable materials, there's still both a 2.8-inch touchscreen and keyboard in tow. A two megapixel camera and the usual medley of GPS, Bluetooth and WiFi round out the wallet (and Mother Earth) friendly handset. The Replenish is priced at $100 and will hit Boost Mobile's stores on January 16th. Eco warriors; the press release offers itself below.
