Your corn is calling

Okay - there really are technologies today that allow cornfields to make a call, or at least alert farmers to assorted conditions of the field, but this is different.

It's a mobile phone made, in part, from corn.

The Samsung Reclaim is a 'green' phone for Sprint that is made from bioplastics - with 40 percent of the phone's outer casing coming from corn-based bioplastic.

Since bioplastic -- PLA -- is made in Blair, Nebraska, the chances are pretty good that those phones have Nebraska corn in them.

For more details, see this good post at the Corn Commentary.
