Sanyo SCP-2700 from Sprint
Sanyo isn’t exactly one of the more famous names when it comes to the cellphone market here in the US, although they have come up with some pretty good looking clamshells in the past like the Katana series. Well, the latest handset from Sanyo to hit Stateside would be the SCP-2700 from Sprint that ought to make for a great graduation gift if you happen to know anyone in college or high school seniors who have yet to own a cellphone (a rare number, I suspect). What’s up with this handset? Well, let’s take a closer look at what it can offer right after the jump.
The Sanyo SCP-2700 will come with a 2.2″ color LCD display that isn’t touchscreen – now isn’t that a welcome change from the slew of touchscreen handsets that have been making their way across markets all over the world lately? Well, call it old technology, but it does have its niche. The compact candybar handset will feature its own QWERTY keyboard to help you get those text messages and email out in double quick time. Not only that, it will cater to either gender with Impulsive Pink and Deep Blue colors, and with threaded text messaging, it will be much easier to keep track of your conversations each time an email or text message comes in. For folks who can’t live with emoticons, there is a dedicated emoticon key that makes it a snap to insert smiley faces and other symbols into their text messages and emails.
Heck, to make the entire graduation a much more fun affair, why not purchase two SCP-2700’s for free (both mom and daughter can get one apiece to help them keep in touch about the latest in fashion as well as boyfriend advice across a long distance once the “little girl” grows up and leaves the nest) as long as they’re new-line activations and tied down to a two-year service agreement on two Individual Plans with messaging, or a Family Plan with messaging.
