Sprint and SANYO announce the expansion of SANYO's family of award-winning wireless phones with the introduction of the Sprint PCS Vision Ready Link RL-4920 by SANYO. Dubbed "The Power Bar" for its high-capacity battery power, the RL-4920 boasts an unprecedented 5.5 hours of PCS talk time and 7 days of standby time. It will be available nationwide in Sprint Stores, RadioShack and Best Buy stores, and online at www.sprintpcs.com for a suggested retail price of $219.99, with special rebates depending on the service agreement.
The RL-4920 by Sanyo is the most feature-rich phone in SANYO's 4000 Series line of bar-type PCS phones, which have earned a reputation for performance, reliability and ease of use. The RL-4920 represents not only an improvement in battery performance, but also an improvement in form factor, with a design that is noticeably sleeker and lighter than previous models in this family.
Also new to this model is Sprint PCS Ready Link functionality. Sprint PCS Ready Link gives users a quick, convenient way to communicate one-on-one or with groups of up to six people with the push of a button. Ideal for short "get in, get out" conversations, Sprint PCS Ready Link is an efficient and cost-effective way to quickly access co-workers, clients, suppliers, family and friends anywhere on the enhanced Sprint Nationwide PCS Network.
"Our 4000 Series phones are well-respected and considered by many to be our 'workhorse' models due their excellent quality, clean designs and simplicity of use," said Atsushi Kodera, group vice president and general manager of SANYO Fisher Company's Wireless Communications Division. "Fans of this line will be happy to see that the RL-4920 remains true to the spirit of its predecessors, while offering improved battery life, a smaller size, Ready Link capability and other powerful features."
