Samsung Blue Earth S7550 PreviewSamsung Blue Earth
Aside from the exciting solar panel, the Samsung Blue Earth S7550 delivers quite a decent functionality controlled via the phone’s TouchWiz interface. The home screen consists of three separate pages that host well-known widgets and you are free to place any of them wherever you like.
We couldn’t find the widget dedicated to separated garbage collection practices, but we did spot another interesting one for a program called Eco walk. The app counts your steps and keeps you posted on how many calories you burned, how many trees you saved and your contribution towards reduced amounts of CO2 emissions released in the atmosphere thanks to the fact that you´re merely walking rather than cruising in your SUV. We believe many ladies will love the app, if not for the saved tree count, then at least for the burned calorie statistics.
Everything else about the interface is pretty much standard. The main menu is divided into three screens that allow icon rearrangement to your own liking. If you feel like venturing deeper into the settings you will eventually come across the Eco mode that helps the Samsung Blue Earth save energy by decreasing screen brightness and shortening the time before the handset switches to power saving mode if unused.
The Samsung Blue Earth S7550 comes with a bold, eye-catchy design and delivers decent interface functions that, thanks to the 3-inch touch sensitive screen are easy to handle. The idea of integrating a solar panel is awesome and we do hope it will prove useful in real life, but we will tell you about that when we have reviewed a final, retail unit. If we account for all the eco-friendly features of the device and the environmentally friendly measures taken in its manufacturing process, we can definitely say the Blue Earth makes for a fully functional cell phone of an entirely new, more responsible generation.

Does anyone know what company, if any, in the US this is going to be for? Whith Sprint's Reclaim looking like this phone's ugly step sister, I was hoping Sprint would get this one too.
