Sanyo M1 launches on Sprint

Dec 03 2006 - 05:20 PM ET | Sanyo, Sprint Nextel

sanyo-m1-large-front.jpgSprint has launched another music phone, the Sanyo M1. While the recent trend has been to launch music oriented handsets with limited memory (relying instead on a memory card slot and user upgrades), the M1 sports an impressive 1GB of internal memory. That's the most internal memory of any phone on a national carrier, but there is no expansion slot. At 23mm thick (.9"), the phone is a bit chunky when compared to other recent music phones.

The Sanyo M1 has a solid feature set for a high-end feature phone:

  • QVGA display with 262k colors
  • EV-DO data (PowerVision)
  • Bluetooth with A2DP stereo support
  • 2.0 megapixel camera
  • Music player with external controls (MP3, AAC, AAC+) and stereo speakers
  • Speakerphone

Sprint is selling the Sanyo M1 for $199 with a new 2-year contract and $150 in instant savings. It's available now. Another photo of the M1 is available below.
