What's Green, Made of Corn and Has Buttons?

Sprint has introduced a cell phone made from corn . The case is made of a corn-based "bioplastic" and the box is made up of recycled material. Sprint will donate $2 of every phone sale to the Nature Conservancy.

The $50 Samsung Reclaim is Sprint's entry into the hottest segment of the cellphone market this year: cheap phones with full keyboards. The ecological features are a bonus.
