Chatsworth, CA -- Today SANYO announced planned availability of the next generation in SANYO's popular 8000 Series phones, the SCP-8400 by SANYO. Long considered SANYO's "go-to" camera phone, the latest edition is packed with advanced features for entertainment and productivity including Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, high-resolution QVGA internal screen, music player, removable memory card, and the ability to operate on the high-speed Sprint Power Vision(SM) Network. The SCP-8400 by SANYO is available in three bold color selections, Electric Blue, Powder White and Midnight Black.
The SCP-8400 by SANYO will be available on October 1 through Sprint retail stores, select third-part retail stores, www.Sprint.com and Sprint telesales (1-800-SPRINT-1) for $279.99 suggested retail price or $99.99 after mail-in rebates with a two-year subscriber agreement.
The most notable enhancement is the inclusion of Sprint Power Vision capabilities, which allows users to enjoy streaming music and video, live TV, full-length music downloads, fast Web browsing and On Demand information for news, sports, weather and more, all at broadband-like download speeds.
In addition, the camera has been upgraded to 1.3 Megapixel resolution. The internal screen is larger (2.0-inch diagonal) and offers QVGA resolution (240 x 320 pixels) for better viewing of images and other media. With the addition of the removable microSD memory card, the SCP-8400 now also supports larger memory capacities (a 64MB card is included and optional cards up to 1GB are supported,) a built-in MP3/AAC music player, and a mass storage mode which allows files to be easily transferred from a PC and stored to the memory card using an included USB cable.
The SCP-8400 by SANYO also represents an expansion of Bluetooth functionality in SANYO's lineup. Supported Bluetooth applications include wireless Bluetooth headsets, hands-free car kits, dial-up networking (phone as modem), vCard transfer via Object Push Profile, and File Transfer Protocol.
On top of the technological advancements, the SCP-8400 by SANYO has a fresh new appearance and features a unique new personalization accessory called the "SANYO FaceMask." Unlike a traditional faceplate, which must be used to finish the look of a phone, the SANYO FaceMask is an add-on fashion accessory. FaceMasks come in a variety of shapes and designs and complement the colors of the phone while allowing extreme personalization. The Midnight Black phone comes with a Blue FaceMask, Electric Blue phone with Black FaceMask, and Powder White phone with Metallic Lavender FaceMask. Additional FaceMasks are available for purchase.
The SCP-8400 by SANYO supports the latest version of Sprint Themes, allowing for even more personalization. Themes allow users to select a user interface for the standby screen, main menu and favorites and, in some cases, link to other Theme-related multimedia and online content. One pre-loaded Theme is included and additional Themes can be easily downloaded from the handset.
