Sprint Sanyo Zio on sale for FREE

Sprint Sanyo Zio Android phone

Sanyo Zio Android phone from Sprint. Promotion for IntoMobile.

When it comes to bang for your buck, you really can’t beat something that’s free. That’s why Sprint wants you to know that they’re offering would-be Android users a new Sanyo Zio for absolutely nothing when you buy the phone online for the next couple weeks. That means you can get your hands on the Sanyo Zio’s 3.5-inch curved WVGA touchscreen, 3.2-megapixel camera, and its slim and lightweight form-factor for free when you purchase the handset online. The only catch is that you have to buy it online here.

The Zio is an impressive mid-range Android phone with a 3.5-inch WVGA screen, 600 MHz processor, and 3.2-megapixel camera. It comes with Android 2.1 OS, which isn’t the latest and greatest from Mountain View, but it still packs a punch. It also comes with Sprint ID support, allowing you to quickly switch between homescreen profiles that can be individually customized with various apps, widgets, and shortcuts on the homescreen – say, one homescreen for work, one for play, one for vacation, and one for your or your significant other’s birthday. Sprint says it will soon update their curvy and sleek mid-ranger to Android 2.2 OS, although we’re still not told when, exactly, that will happen.

From now through January 8th, 2011, Sprint will front you a $100 mail-in rebate on the Sanyo Zio when you buy the handset through Sprint.com. Since the handset is normally priced at about $100, you basically walk away from this deal without having to pay anything out of pocket. You will have to sign up for a new 2-year contract with Big Yellow, but that’s pretty much par for the course with deals like this anyway.
