The outside of the box screams green — it's literally green-colored on the sides with a natural tan top and bottom. The graphics are simple and understated and printed with soy ink. The paperstock "contains 70% Post Consumer Paper".
The inner box slides out of the top.
And there she is.
The full package — phone, charger, MicroSD adapter card, return recycling mailer, and a couple small thin booklets, including warranty, user manual, and whatnot.
The backside. It comes with a 2 megapixel camera.
The phone sides sideways to reveal a full keyboard.
I think the Sprint greener cell phone logo (a cell phone growing out of a plant) is kind of creepy. It would be pretty cool if we could harvest, instead of buy, our cell phones, but then I suspect we'd just be handing our money over to Monsanto instead of Sprint. :D
I'll have a full review up in the weeks to come.
Full disclosure: Sprint sent me a cell phone to review for free.
