The first handset, Sanyo SCP-2700, is a candybar presented by the US carrier as being “stylish and easy-to-use”. It obviously has a full QWERTY keyboard, plus Sprint-exclusive stuff like Sprint Navigator, Sprint Mobile Email Work and Sprint Family Locator.
The phone will be available starting May 10, in two color versions: blue and pink.
The specs of Sanyo SCP-2700 include:
- 1xRTT connectivity
- 2.2 inch TFT display with 320 x 240 pixels and 65K colors
- Enhanced messaging features
- 1.3MP camera
- Talk-time: up to 4.8 hours
- 4.3 x 2.4 x 0.6 inches
- 3.4 ounces
So how much will this SCP-2700 cost? Only $29.99 – obviously with a two-year contract agreement and after the usual $50 mail-in rebate.
Available until now in purple and black, LG Lotus will be released in a third color version: the above-mentioned dark red one.
