First eco phone from Samsung!

Samsung has announced it's first solar powered GSM cellphone, the Crest E1107, for eco-friendly, budget conscious types that don't seem to be concerned with practicality.

Apparently, the Crest can generate enough power for 5-10 minutes of talk time with one hour of exposure to the sun. Like I said, practicality flies out the window here. Not surprisingly, the additional features are basic—like an FM radio, MP3 ringers, fake call feature (for avoiding unwanted calls) a flashlight, and a few minor features tailored to specific markets. However, there is no denying that it is easy on the budget. Besides the power savings, Unwired View claims the device is already on sale in India for around $59.

Cheap or not, we probably won't be seeing it in the States anytime soon. The Crest E1107 is slated for release in India, Europe, Southeast Asia, Southwest Asia, and Latin America starting this month.
