Regardless of the touchscreen revolution that’s sweeping across the globe, there is most definitely a healthy bunch of wireless users that aren’t looking for too much more than basic cellphone calling features in their stylish clamshell of candybar handset. To that end, Sprint is gearing up to offer their users the entry- to mid-range Sanyo Katana Eclipse successor to the successful Sanyo Katana lineup of flip-phones.
Last we saw, the Sanyo Katana Eclipse had passed the FCC hurdle with flying colors, and now the un-ugly handset is getting all glammed up to attract a worthy suitor – namely, Sprint. What you see here is the Sanyo Katana Eclipse looking as good as it’ll ever get (the morning after should be a doozy).
Engadget Mobile managed to get their hands on the first press-shots of this sleek clamshell for Sprint, but details on the feature set are otherwise lacking. What we do know, however, is that the Sprint Sanyo Katana Eclipse will come packing a modest spec-sheet listing a 2 megapixel camera, EVDO, GPS with Sprint Navigation, Bluetooth, microSD card slot, Sprint TV, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
