According to Pocket Lint UK, Samsung has launched a solar-powered mobile phone made from PCM, a material extracted from recycled plastic bottles, at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. Called Blue Earth, it comes with a touch screen which Samsung claims to be a unique user interface designed “to draw attention to preserving our fragile environment”.
