Knowing that you’re helping out the environment by picking up one of the eco-friendly devices on Sprint’s lineup, you might find some to be inadequate for your modern tastes – so that’s where Sprint’s Samsung Replenish comes to mind.

Yesterday, word traveled about Sprint announcing the device today, and right on cue, it’s announced as being the world’s first “green” Android powered device – literally! Naturally, some would associate green with Android, but in this case, it’s partially constructed out of recycled plastic to save the environment. Moreover, its eco-friendly nature is further supplemented by its recycled packaging and energy efficient charger. And if that’s not enough savings, you’ll be surprised to know that there is an added benefit with buying the handset – Sprint will actually wave its usual $10 per moth premium data fee; thus replenishing your very own pockets.

As for specs, it’s nothing spectacular, but considering its $49.99 on-contract cost and still rare portrait style QWERTY form factor, it can undoubtedly be appreciated by some people. Some of its features include a 2.8” QVGA touchscreen, 2-megapixel camera, 600MHz Qualcomm MSM-7627-2 processor, 256MB RAM, 512MB ROM, and a 1,160 mAh battery.

Dude, form factor wise, it's the same shit. Portrait QWERTY below a portrait touchscreen. That's what he meant.

Why could Samsung include a 3.2 MP camera as opposed to a 2.0 MP shooter. The comparable LG Optimus products have 3.2 MP.

i use to love sprint but what it has been doing lately it is very disappointing at least to me, no good phones at all, and now this samsung that remind me the TREO era wit a 2.0 camera, just incredible . The only thing that may attract new customers is to have competitive phones, because after all ,almost all plans are comparable , and with this phones it remind me MetroPcs

WooW!! Seriously "sun0066" you sound like you have no clue at ALL... Not only Sprint has some of the best phones available, but they are about the release some of the BEST Phones very soon from HTC, Motorola, Samsung, LG etc etc including the GOOGLE NEXUS S 4G.. You think thats competitive? if not,, then you must be on drugs..

On top of all that, out of the top 4 US Carriers, no one beats Sprint Plans by faaar.. Even if at one time one of the carriers were to lower their prices, they still dotn even come close to offer the same things for the same value..

I think Sprint is doing just fine and have continue to get better at what they do.
