Samsung Replenish hands-on

We’ve just spent some time with Samsung’s brand new eco-friendly device, the Samsung Replenish. In terms of eco-friendliness, the device is made of up over 80% recyclable materials. It features a 2-megapixel camera, 2.8-inch display, reasonably large 1600┬ámAh battery and it runs Android 2.2 (Froyo). The QWERTY keyboard is reasonably decent, too. We’re able to pound out emails quickly, and it’s reminiscent of the old Samsung Blackjack-style layout. The big news here is that there’s an optional solar-charging battery cover that will give you an extra 20 minutes of talk time after 1 hour of sun bathing. Sprint is also encouraging and rewarding Replenish owners for being so green by not charging the extra $10 smartphone fee that’s normally required. The Samsung Replenish will be available on May 8th for $49.99 with color choices of black, blue or magenta.
