Following our story on the Hoshino USB drive, made of fermented corn, we bring you a new green phone from Samsung that follows a similar formula.
Samsung has used bioplastics (materials extracted from corn) in two previous models. However, the just announced Samsung E200 Eco is the first model whose entire case is made from the environmentally friendly and easily degradable material.
Environmental issues aside, the E200 Eco is nothing to get excited about when it comes to specs. It features a 1.3-megapixel camera, MP3 support, and video messaging capabilities.
The Samsung E200 Eco is available in Europe starting next month in a packaging that is made from recycled materials.
