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?

Why is this phone more expensive than the Katana and the 8400, let alone other brand sprint phones?

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.

Minimize Applications

I held one of these last week at a product showing and must say I was impressed, especially with the military spec aspect.

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...
Nextel Java capable phones have been able to do that for YEARS! I really missed that when I switched to CDMA....

Built-in GPS navigation?

If this phone is touting its GPS capability, is there any chance that it will have a built-in navigation system that doesn't require any extra usage charges from Sprint?

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?
for the phone to be able to use GPS, it will need a data connection. mobile phons typically use A-GPS. that is, since the phone doesnt have a direct connection to the satellites, it needs the carriers assistance with attaining gepositioning informatio...

sanyo makes phones exclusively for Sprint for a reason . . .
Because they're good quality? I agree.
There are many loyal Sanyo followers, each to his own!
sanyo makes quite possibly the toughest phones on the market with the exception of nextel of course. anyone who takes looks over functionality is an idiot. motorola is garbage once again with the exception of nextel, samsungs are only good on cdma, an...
This is the good cell you have

Information incorrect

This phone will not be an entry level phone. It is a Military Spec. rugged phone that will be EVDO/Ready Link capable.
i did hear something about that. EV-DO but no camera. perfect for those that cannot take their phone in to work
The 7000 is entry-level.

Mill spec?

I thought I read on sprintusers that this phone will be mill spec and EVDO capable.
