>> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for CNET.com and this is a First Look at the Sanyo Katana Eclipse from Sprint's Nextel. As you can see here it's a very shiny reflective compact clam shell here. It's a very reflective mirror finish. On the front here is a simple 1-inch external display. And then there's a speakerphone right here, also the external speaker grill. Underneath the external display are three music player controls. On either side of the external display here are two strips LED indicators and these two provide illuminating or lighting effects to indicate incoming calls, as well as incoming text messages and so on and so forth. Flip open the phone and you get a pretty nice 2-inch display here. Kind of, you know mediocre, but that's okay for a phone of this price range. As you can see the menu interface is pretty simple to navigate through, very easy to use. We didn't really like the keypad too much. They're pretty slippery, a little bit crowded and they're very flat to the surface of the phone. Other features of the phone include a 1.3-megpixel camera. There's also a music player. It has EV-DO Rev A, so it has access to Sprint's TV, Sprint Music Store, which lets you download songs for 99 cents a track, which is a pretty good. So it's a very full-featured phone for only 99 with the two-year service agreement. My name is Nicole Lee and this has been the Sanyo Katana Eclipse. ^M00:01:27 [ Music ]
The Sanyo Katana DLX is the best Sanyo cell phone to date, with a fashionable design, plenty of features, and good performance.
The Sanyo Katana LX is an entry-level camera phone with a mirror-finish and an OLED display.
The Sanyo 6600 Katana pales in comparison to the Motorola Razr and the Samsung MM-A900 in terms of design and features. But on its own, it's a pretty good midtier phone.
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 VI-2300 is a functional but unremarkable Sprint phone.
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.
Sprint subscribers will get a kick out of the multimedia features on Sanyo's new megapixel camera phone--if they can stomach the lack of Bluetooth and the hefty size.
The Sanyo MM-9000 flip phone is a good choice for a Sprint 3G phone.
If you can deal with the phone's heft, this Sanyo for Sprint service gets the job done.
The Sanyo Pro-200 is a great solution for Sprint customers who want to use the Nextel Direct Connect push-to-talk service.
