>> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Sanyo Katana DLX. It is the latest Sanyo Katana and it is much improved over the original Sanyo Katana from last year. It is much shinier and has a much more streamlined look to it. There is a simple, external screen on here. There is a 1.3 megapixel camera. On the side is the Micro SD card slot and a charger. And the other spine here, there is the charger jack and the volume control button. Open it up, and you get a very nice screen. Underneath the display, you get in this jewel-like key pad. It's a little crowded, but they are raised enough above the surface so you can dial by feel if you want to. As far as features go, it is much improved over the original Katana as well. There's an MP3 player, it has EVDO, which means it has XS2 on Sprints broadband services, like Sprint TV. The Sprint music store, so you can download music over the air. Web surfing is really fast because of EVDO. You also get Sprints on demand feature that lets you see local news and weather information on your phone. So, overall, it is definitely the best Sanyo Katana out of the series and this is one of the better Sanyo phones I've seen out there. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Sanyo Katana DLX. ^M00:01:21 [ Music ]

The Sanyo Katana II offers a more streamlined design and increased memory when compared to the first Katana. It's also very affordable.
The Sanyo SCP-3200 is a cell phone with a simple design and basic features.
The Sanyo Katana LX is an entry-level camera phone with a mirror-finish and an OLED display.
Despite a few quirks, the Sanyo Katana Eclipse is an excellent midrange multimedia phone for Sprint customers.
The Sanyo SCP-3810 is a typical Sanyo phone: functional, easy to use, and a good performer.
Get a first look at Sanyo's new cell phone in action.
The Sanyo M1 is a multimedia-powerhouse cell phone from Sprint. It won't win any design awards, but a solid feature set as well as 1GB of internal memory make this an excellent handset for media junkies.
The Sanyo SCP-7050 is a cell phone with a lackluster appearance and a durable design. Its built-in GPS and Ready Link support make the SCP-7050 great for those who need a tough phone for the rough outdoors.
Sprint's Sanyo Zio will pale in comparison with Sprint's other Android handsets, but it offers functional features and serviceable performance at an affordable price.
