Samsung Reclaim at Sprint

Sprint today gave little time for rumors to spread by formally launching the Samsung Reclaim. The carrier's first turn at a green phone is made from 80 percent recyclable material and comes in suitably recyclable packaging. Similarly, the phone is free of toxic chemicals like BFR or PVC and abandons the paper manual in favor of a web version.

As for features, the Reclaim is a vertical QWERTY slider with quicker access to Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and YouTube and EVDO-based 3G to speed access. A 2-megapixel camera, assisted GPS and microSDHC card support up to 32GB also put it above simpler eco phones like T-Mobile's Renew.

Most stores should have the Reclaim on August 16th, when the phone will sell for a comparatively low $50 in blue or green colors. Walmart should get the device in September.
