Some notes: These phones and prices are as of 1/3/08 and can change…. the big Tech show CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is coming up next week and will show some of the new products, including cell phones, that are coming out this year and anyone getting a new phone should definitely wait to see what is coming out in terms of cell phones for Sprint…  there are many other phones listed in 7.3 raating on Cnet other than the 2 listed above…the phones listed here do not include “smartphones” such as Palm, Windows Mobile and Blackberry phones…. remember the phone you choose is up to you and that choice may vary on your budget, type of style and phone, intent of use among anything else you take into account. This list is just here to give you an idea of some phones so you understand what your getting and so that your shopping experience will be easier (both for you and your parents).

  4. can sanyo sprint katana be used in Africa?

  5. It is robust, after 6 months working everyday in all kind circumstances it just looks like as new as the day I got it.I work in a lab and on the field, as a tool I need GPS, Internet connection, camera for pictures and videos and some applications.
    I can take pictures in the field and send it by email, in my case it is really helpful. Using GPS and an app I can locate the equipments that I work with and see all information about them. I make videos on the field and show it in the lab.The internet connection is fast and easy. I am really happy with it.
