ESPN Mobile has lowered the price of the MVP (Sanyo 9000) handset to $99. This is down from the $499 price the MVNO launched it with in February. In addition, the phone is now being advertised as available "while supplies last." It is rumored that a new handset will be available as early as June. Other new models are expected later in the year. ESPN's plan prices remain the same, from $35 a month for 100 minutes to $225 per month for 4000. All plans include 35 MB of data for access to Mobile ESPN and other online features.

New [Sanyo] handsets only?

Or will there be more manufactures for this MVNO?
I would imagine that you'd see something from the new Nokia/Sanyo partnership.

It sucks to be.....

The person who paid 400 dollars last month....
What is interesting is, is that Sanyo charged Sprint $495 when the 9000 (different color MVP) came out! Sprint could only "sell" them for $379 plus discounts. Sanyo basicly raped them since it was the first EVDO phone they made. Sounds like ESPN go th...
