Sanyo SCP-3200 at Sprint
Sprint on Wednesday announced that it had picked up the Sanyo SCP-3200, a clamshell phone with a handful of features that lift it above strictly entry-level handsets. Bluetooth and a VGA camera add hands-free calling and photography, but the phone's distinguishing trait is its long-range wireless, according to Sprint. The 3200 includes Internet access (though likely limited to basic 1xRTT) for web browsing, mail, and picture sharing; assistive GPS support also lets the phone provide car navigation.
Officially available now, the phone ships in black, blue, or pink as either a $150 device without any contract or as little as $30 when joined to a two-year plan and a $20 rebate.
