Samsung Restore coming soon to Sprint

By: Mark Tiedemann April 20th, 2010

In keeping with Sprint’s mission on saving the earth, Samsung and Sprint have announced the new Samsung Restore Eco-Friendly phone.

Some of the features include a full QWERTY keyboard, optical joystick, a 2.0 MP camera and camcorder, MP3 player with microSD slot.  Other standard sprint phone features include Bluetooth, Sprint Football Live, Sprint Navigation and TV.

And if the Limeade color doesn’t suite you, it’s also going to be coming in Midnight flavor.

More information and pictures after the break.

Eco-Friendly Design:

Samsung Restore and its packaging are designed with environmentally responsible components:

  • The outer casing contains 27 percent post-consumer recycled plastic and the handset as a whole is 84 percent recyclable.
  • Restore meets strict RoHS standards and only has low levels of environmentally sensitive materials (PVC, BFRs, Phthalates, Beryllium).
  • The device is powered by an Energy Star Version 2.0 qualified energy efficient charger (level V); with standby power loss less than 30mW.
  • The packaging is 100 percent recyclable, featuring a cardboard box made from 70 percent post consumer materials and printed with soy ink.
  • The paper manual has been replaced with an online user manual, which users can access once the device is available this summer.
  • Samsung Restore will be available this summer in all Sprint retail channels including Sprint Stores, and 1-800-SPRINT1 for $49.99 with a new two-year service agreement, after a $50 mail-in rebate (taxes and surcharges excluded). For more information, customers can visit

      what a waste of time, energy, and resources. This might as well be the rant.

      Sprint all about the earth and such how come they have mail in rebates? I bet all the waist from that alone could fill up the grand canyon oh wait probably not cause the reason they have mail in rebates is to rip customers off with lost mail and hope we forget about them.
