The Eco Conscious Samsung S7550 Blue Earth Delivers Excellent Performance
The Samsung S7550 Blue Earth is an eco-friendly mobile phone which offers some enticing and exciting alternatives at a time when issues such as climate change are at the forefront of many people’s minds. One element which is unrivalled is the inclusion of a solar panel, which negates the need for an electrical socket to charge the battery. Innovation is not the only useful feature, its is also compact in size, in fact the handset is only 108 mm x 53 mm wide, yet still manages to include features such as touch screen technology and internet access.
The handset comes with an impressive 3.0 inch TFT touch screen that is both colourful and exuberant, by virtue of the fact it offers 16 million colour variants to be displayed within the confines of a 240 x 400 pixel screen size. Additional elements include an accelerometer sensor and a turn to mute and smart unlock feature. A popular feature, which has become a standard, is the photo call feature, which provides the means to display an image when a call is received from a specific number. In addition a speakerphone is also provided. The phone has an internal memory of 130 MB with the option of utilising the built in microSD card slot, to expand the memory capacity up to 16 GB.
Entertainment is provided by means of a stereo FM radio with RDS and an MP4/MP3 player, whilst the included games offer hours of game play capability. The handset comes with an integrated 3.15 mega pixel camera and provides face and smile detection and the alternative of QVGA quality video capture at 15 frames per second. A secondary camera is provided within the package.
From an eco friendly point of view, the solar panel takes some beating. The panel is on the back of the phone and provides the means to charge the battery without any need of an external power source. Carrying on the eco theme, the handset is itself made from eco-friendly materials and also comes with an eco-walk application and eco-mode profile function. The GPS function offers satellite navigation whilst additional features include an organiser, document viewer and voice memo facility. GPRS and EDGE as well as HSDPA and Wi Fi connections are all built in and combined with the blue tooth and USB offer the full compliment of connectivity options.
The Samsung S7550 Blue Earth is the first handset which combines technology with an eco friendly theme in an effective manner, to such an extent to make it a very marketable handset. The use of the relevant materials and technology, such as the solar panel, are an indication as to the direction that many feel the mobile phone market will go, this handset is the first step.
