The FCC today approved the Sanyo S1, the company's return to bar phone for Sprint. Like Sanyo's original bar phones, the S1 is thin - 11.1mm - however that's not uncommon for current handsets. The S1 is an entry level phone with Bluetooth, no camera is even visible in the initial documents. Sprint previewed this phone at an event last month with indications it is due out before the holidays.

Full keyboard sanyo to follow?

Anyone have any word on the rumored full keyboard Sanyo phone coming to sprint?
well if sanyo is making a qwerty keyboard phone it will ONLY be on sprint, until they sell their wireless devision.

NOT the first bar phone in 5 years

Arent you guys forgetting the 4920 and 4930? That was like 2 years ago
you're right. i totally forgot about those. and oddly, when i double checked through our sanyo records, i made those into clamshells in my head since they were so oddly shaped. sorry!
Also, by the way, Sanyo's original bar phones weren't particularly thin. The 4500/4700 series was out before the 6000 series.
not even that long, because we had a 4930 in our store not even 6 months ago!!!

And don't forget the 4700...although that was more brick-like.
