Sanyo Pro phones at Sprint

Sprint has announced that two Sanyo phones, the Pro-200 and Pro-700, will be hosted on its network later this month. The pair are notable mainly for combining both push-to-talk access and Mobile Broadband, two options Sprint rarely combines. In particular they have support for EVDO Rev. A, which delivers faster speeds than conventional EVDO. The Pro-200 is basic clamshell, with Bluetooth abilities and support for e-mail and text messaging.

The Pro-700 is essentially the same phone, but reflecting the walkie talkie-like use of many push-to-talk devices, has been ruggedized to military standards, protecting against factors such as dust, shock and vibration. It should cost $70 after a $50 rebate and a two-year contract; under the same terms, the 200 will cost $50.
