Sanyo Katana for Sprint

Jun 30 2006 - 12:10 PM ET | Sanyo, Sprint Nextel

katana Sprint is showing off the Sanyo Katana, a high-profile handset that is set to launch on July 10th. Like recent models from other companies (RAZR, FUSIC, V, etc) , that Katana eschews arcane model numbers and uses a more iconic name. The Katana is thin clamshell that will compete with the Samsung A900 for style conscience buyers. The main drawback is that the Katana doesn't have EV-DO like the A900 does.

Features of the Sanyo Katana include:

  • Dimensions: 3.9” x 2.0” x 0.6” Weight: 3.5 ounces
  • Bluetooth (DUN supported)
  • QVGA display with 65K colors
  • Speakerphone
  • Wireless backup
  • VGA camera

The Katana comes in Mystic Black, Blue Sapphire, Cherry Blossom Pink and Polar White. Look for it July 10th at $129.99 with a 2-year service contract.
