Sprint and Samsung today announced the new Restore, a phone made from recycled materials. Samsung says that 84% of the Restore's materials can be recycled at the end of the device's life and it comes with an Energy Star rated charger. It features a sideways slide-out QWERTY keyboard, 2 megapixel camera with video capture, optical joystick, and support for microSD cards up to 32GB. Other features include stereo Bluetooth and navigation support. The Restore will become available later this summer for $50 after rebates with new agreement.
