Sanyo SCP-2700 and LG Lotus in red announced by Sprint

Today, Sprint has unveiled two new messaging phones that will be launched later this spring: the Sanyo SCP-2700 and a dark red version of the already-available LG Lotus.

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
  • Bluetooth
  • 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.


Sprint didn’t say when the new Lotus will hit the shelves, but it should happen pretty soon.
