Motorola Citrus: Motorola’s First Eco-Friendly Android Phone Made of Recycled Materials

Motorola unveiled their environment-friendly Motorola Citrus Android phone at CTIA 2010 in San Francisco. The company says the feature-rich Citrus droid phone is also an excellent eco-friendly product because its body is made of 25% recycled consumer plastic materials, is PVC and BFR-free and comes packaged in a recycled cartoon. The Motorola Citrus is also certified CarbonFree by the CarbonFund organization. FYI, the first eco-friendly phone by Motorola was the Motorola W233 Renew, released in 2009.

Aside from being an excellent example of green production, the Motorola Citrus is a full-featured smartphone that comes with Android OS 2.1 Eclair. It is an entry-level and cheap android phone that’s easy on the budget.

Motorola is going green with the new Motorola Citrus Android Phone

Motorola’s android phone Citrus comes with a 3-inch capacitive touchscreen display. And surprisingly, unlike my cute Samsung Galaxy 5 i5503, the display of the Citrus will offer full multi-touch support. Meaning you can do pinch-to-zoom on this phone!

The Android OS means you can do multi-tasking with the Motorola Citrus. This phone is designed for first-time smartphone buyers who aren’t still ready to buy expensive handsets such as Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 or Motorola Droid Pro. Verizon’s Motorola Droid 2 World Edition is also more pricey compared to this one.

Further, Motorola Citrus also comes with a unique BackTrack software application and a touch panel located at the back that lets you quickly navigate through websites, home screen panels, emails, music and video files without blocking the small 3.0-inch display screen.

Here are the best features of the new Motorola Citrus.
