Smartphones, PCs Go Green for Earth Day 2010

by Nicholas Kolakowski
As Earth Day reaches its 40th anniversary, it's worth looking at what various tech companies, ranging from Lenovo and Samsung to Sony and Toshiba, are doing to ensure that their devices are not only good for productivity, but also the environment. Many of these smartphones and laptops are built from recycled (or recyclable) materials, and integrate power-saving features designed to leave less of a carbon footprint. While a laptop or smartphone's eco-friendly features may not seal the deal for many consumers and businesses—which may be more interested in processing power or the built-in camera's megapixels—the following devices' recycled plastics and energy efficiency could make their owners feel that much more environmentally responsible.
