Sanyo PM-8200 / SCP-8200
The shipping date for the PM8200 has not been set. The next phone to actually come out using Sprint's service is the Samsung A680, which ships on April 19th. It won't have the reception that the 8200 has, but Sprint needs to move more 8100's out of their inventory before they release the next model up at the EXACT SAME PRICE POINT. They would just sit on their stock of 8100's if they released it now. Give it 2 weeks or so, and they will have a release date set by the end of April.
Of course, there is a chance that the fools in this forum know more than a regional Sprint R...
compare to 5500/PM4500
Ok, I JUST received my new PM4500 and love it, but if the 8200 is better -- I still have a little time to exchange. What are the differences? Seems like just camera placement.
Is there a performance difference in Vision, text, browser, etc?? Seems too new for the usual comparisons online.
How to order
OK, I was typing that while I was on hold. Apparently, he was having problems ordering the phone, so he called up a store near me and I just have to pick it up from them now. Even though I called earlier and they said they don't have it. Tricky bastards. I'll give you an update if anyone is interested.
pm-8200 is now available!!!
A great day for those who love Sprint and Sanyo

I really like this phone and am deciding either i replace my phone with the Sanyo PM8200 or the Samsung VM-A680. If price for this phone goes well, it might just win me over. Later pplz!
