Sprint tonight showed off four new handsets the carrier will launch in the coming month. Each of the entry-level to midrange handsets has a the ability to backup and restore contacts over the network. Sprint is expected to launch this feature in all upcoming handsets, including a raft of EV-DO handsets expected soon. None of today's phones have EV-DO high speed data or any other high end features except Bluetooth.

No EVDO on Katana?????

Sanyo Katana: A thin, RAZR-esque clamshell available in four colors. There's a bright QVGA screen inside, and a second color display outside. Features include VGA camera, Bluetooth (including DUN), PCS Vision 1xRTT data, and speakerphone.
Well, if it says 1xrtt and doesn’t mention EV-DO then tells us one thing- it doesn’t have EV-DO on it.

Sprint has 2 RAZR wannabe's

1st the Blade and now the Katana, wow such variety must attract some new customers
besides cingular imo, sprint has a nice selection of phones, if i was still with sprint i would had got the blade, and the Samsung A640, and the katana would be my last choice, i tried the blade, it was really nice and the samsung a640 will be really ...
So I guess you think that because Motorola made the RAZR that no one else should make a thin phone? The blade is much better than any RAZR (this isnt opinion) and the KATANA gives an entry level customer the same form factor in an affordable manner. V...
Is thin still in??? I would've thought the RAZR ruined the market. Man, you can't go down the street w/o seeing the RAZR.

Reminds me of that cartoon strip I saw a while ago where it's on the moon and you see three recycling bins: one marked 'Pl...

Very slick looking quartet...

I do believe Sprint has the slickest, most diverse lineup of handsets available. I'm very impressed with the looks of these four phones. Very cool.
Eh, the 2400 is pretty much the same phone we've been seeing for years, with the same cheap plastics/feel of the 2300 Sanyo.

The katana is also made of 100% cheap plastic Rolling Eyes

Samsung SPH-A640 is Bluetooth 2.0

Didn't see that mentioned.

Katana is a lowly 1.1 Wink
First in US with 2.0 no less...

Think that warrants some mentioning...
Now that the phone has been "released" how long does it usually take to filter down to the stores for purchase? I can't seem to find them in stock anywhere...
Found it while out of town this weekend in the St. Louis area. Very cool - small, sleek, light. Just what I was looking for.

KANTANA looks fat...

Look at the front of it. The phone looks like it has a bubble around the camera and caller ID. To me that does not seem thin. The phone looks like crap... Smile
Yes, there are some comparison pics floating around of the katana and razr side by side and the katana is not as thin due to that raised area.

I put this link above on a different thread... but I figured I would make sure you saw the link too. The raised area isnt all that raised.
i am a manager at sprint store and we just recieved displays to all the phones.. katana is actually really slim just like 900 and razr. price is cheap. around 100 after rebates. but a900 is going on sale next month..after rebate it will be around 79.0...
