Wireless carrier Sprint and Kyocera Communications Inc. announced today the launch of a new mobile phone, the SANYO Incognito SCP-6760. The device comes to the market with a large amount of multimedia and messaging capabilities, as well as with an appealing design, and a high-gloss, Titanium Black mirrored external surface, a glow-through keypad and OLED external display.
The new device sports a clamshell design, as well as a full QWERTY keyboard when opened. In addition, it comes with a high-resolution 2.6-inch QVGA internal display, and has been specially developed to fit with Sprint's high-speed EVDO network. The new SANYO Incognito SCP-6760 is expected to become available for purchase starting December 6th, priced at $49.99 upon the signing of a two-year contract agreement with the carrier and after a $50 mail-in rebate.
“I’m sure Incognito will be topping many holiday gift lists this season,” said Atsushi (Andy) Kodera, vice president and deputy general manager at Kyocera Communications Inc. “It’s such a clean, sophisticated looking phone but there are so many features at your fingertips when you turn on the glow-through display and open the QWERTY flip. With its amazing combination of style and functionality for less than $50, it’s about as foolproof a gift idea as you’ll see this year.”
Other specs of the new device include touch activated keypad, a 2.0-megapixel photo snapper, great music and video capabilities (support for AAC/AAC+/MP3/WMA music files and H.263/H.264/MPEG4/WMV video formats.), and a microSD memory card slot for additional storage space. Not to mention that the new Incognito is able to deliver fast Internet connectivity, as well as great email and text messaging capabilities, according to the mobile phone carrier.
A variety of popular media and messaging applications will also be included with the new device: Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter, along with Sprint Navigation, Sprint NFL Mobile Live, NASCAR Sprint Cup Mobile, and Sprint Mobile Email for accessing to AOL, Yahoo, WindowsLive, Gmail and corporate email. The new device will join another recently launched device from Kyocera, the SANYO SCP-3810.
Along with the new SANYO Incognito SCP-6760, Kyocera also announced the launch of two new devices, the S2300 Torino and S1310 Domino. The former is a messaging phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, a 1.3-megapixel camera and should land on the market in February, while the latter is a tri-band CDMA device with Bluetooth 2.0 and WAP browser and should arrive in December.
