AT&T Adds Pantech Renue for the Eco-Conscious Texter

AT&T’s latest quick-messaging phone will help you keep in touch with friends and family and help reduce your carbon footprint.

Available now for $69.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate, the Pantech Renue features a design built from 67 percent recyclable material, and comes in packaging made from 95 percent recycled paper.

The phone has a full physical keyboard that slides under the screen. When not in use, you can navigate the handset with the 3.2-inch touchscreen. It offers up to four customizable home screens, so can add shortcuts to your favorite apps, photos and contacts for easier access. The Pantech Renue also comes with a three-megapixel camera on the back.

In addition to the Renue launch, AT&T announced that, beginning today, it will start posting eco-rating labels on all of its phones to show how a device rates based on energy efficiency, use of environmentally preferable materials, and other criteria.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
