Any New Sanyos?


Apr 7, 2006, 3:17 PM
I've gotten some word about some of the new Sanyo's but, I haven't seen any pictures of them. Just wondering if they had anything to show. Thanks.

Nope. Sanyo leaves all the announcing to Sprint. We met with Sprint and checked out their booth, but no new Sanyos. Sad

The big news from Sanyo is that supposedly, and I mean supposedly, the Sanyo brand in the US will be replaced with Nokia's as soon as the integration starts.

I definately haven't heard anything like that, a manager just brought some info by on some new models to be released so I would doubt that. If it were to happen it would be far off.

Baseless rumor.

I spoke with someone yesterday who is actually on the integration committee for Nokia/Sanyo. I can tell you with confidence that those kinds of decisions simply have not been made yet.

We should see some kind of major announcement about that deal in 1-2 months. They hope to have made such decisions by then.

Either way, the new branding won't take effect until 2007.

The Sanyo brand is very strong in Japan and even here with Sprint. I personally expect a joint brand like Sony Ericsson.

Sanyo Nokia? I don't think that that would work.

And this baseless rumor came off of I guess that is why it was removedSad

All I can say is that it is not a "baseless rumor", that there were several reasons for the removal of the article, and that we will follow up with more in-depth coverage shortly.

i think they'll go with the simple nokia/sanyo or vise versa.

Nokyo sounds like vanilla wafer cookies, and Sankia sounds like instant coffee

I was speaking to a customer service rep for Sprint just the other day who said that there is at least one new Sanyo phone coming out this month. The Sanyo 3100. I believe it is to be an upgrade to the 2300. My Operations manager confirmed this, now we're just waiting for the phones to come in.

That's one of the one's that I heard about, I think it has a camera and is going to come in a bunch of colors like the 2300.

Apr 8, 2006, 3:45 PM
Yup, camera, slightly different design, and these color choices:

Brown, hmm, brown is a strange color for a phone, wonder how many we'll sell?
Pink, (finally a pink camera phone on sprint)
and of course sanyotastic silver.

Basically it's a re-packaged 8200.
