While it looks like a conventional Sanyo flip phone, the SCP-2400 has parental control options that make its target age in the 8-12 range.

Other features of the Sanyo SCP-2400 include:

  • 1.1"×1.4" 65K color STN display
  • Ready Link push-to-talk
  • Voice dialing
  • Speakerphone

Sprint is charging $29.99 for the Sanyo SCP-2400 along with a 2-year service contract. It will hit stores in July. It will ship in five colors (see image below).
