Sanyo Updating Entry Level Model For Sprint
Mar 1, 2007, 4:28 PM by (staff)
The FCC today approved a Sanyo SCP 7050, an obvious successor to the 7000 - an entry level ReadyLink handset. The 7050 appears to have traded out analog for the addition of Bluetooth. The phone also features a large graphic calling out its GPS navigation rather than the speakerphone. Although further details are not known, if the 7050 follows in its predecessor's footsteps, it will feature ReadyLink Push To Talk, a monochrome external display, color internal display, speakerphone and 1xRTT data.

Why oh why?
Does this make any sense at all?
So what if it's "rugged" i'm still going to have people come in with broken screens and hinges.
Sanyo, I've said this before, "Catch up with the industry, quick!"
Their only credit will be wimax phones soon... we'll see how that goes.
I don't remember if this was mentioned in the article, but it gives you the ability to "minimize" applications you are working in to do something like make a phone call or text, then when you're done jump back into your application, no need to start it over. Nice for web browsing and GPS nav. Very innovative...
Built-in GPS navigation?
Otherwise, what would be so special about the GPS capability on this phone that hasn't been on every other phone for the past few years that would make Sprint brag about its GPS capability?
