At the upcoming Mobile World Congress conference, Samsung plans to show off its "Blue Earth" cell phone that uses solar energy instead of traditional batteries to power the handset device. The Samsung Blue Earth phone also offers a number of other eco-friendly features, including a personal CO2 monitor.

 

Samsung is taking eco-friendly to new extremes at the Mobile World Congress later this month with its "Blue Earth" cell phone, which uses solar energy instead of traditional batteries to power the device.

The new device -- designed to emulate a flat, rounded pebble -- features a solar panel located on the back of the phone. Absent the real world specs, Samsung says that the panel generates "enough electronic power to call anytime, anywhere."
