Samsung’s Hippie Sensibilties for the Cellphone too.

corn celly

The hippies really do seem to be winning. Not only has the tree-hugging environmentally conscious consumer and corporation become somewhat of a standard barer in the market place,but one of technology’s driving goals seems to be finding and perfecting more sustainable alternatives for everything from car design and alternative fuels to farming methods.

Samsung announced today it would start producing cellphones made from corn based plastics without toxic heavy metals like lead, mercury, or cadmium. Beginning later this month The W510 will be introduced in Korea, and the F268 will be in Chinese hands in the very near future.

No word yet of any stateside action into these corny cellphones. One can only suspect that Samsung’s developing and marketing departments must be in advertising heaven(or hell) depending on the puns, coming up with phone accessories and extras for their new corn-based cellphones. Corn husk phone cases, corn kernel(esque) number keys .

  1. The W510 is a nice looking candybar phone with a camera that faces us, to supply all our mobile video conferencing needs, without the laptop.
