Boost Mobile is launching the SANYO Incognito SCP6760, a QWERTY handset with the following features:

    2MP camera with VGA camcorder
    2.6-inch, 320×240 screen
    Touch-sensitive keypad and OLED display
    Haptic feedback
    MicroSD memory card slot that supports up to 16GB
    MMS, stereo Bluetooth, a voice recorder, voice-activated dialing
    GPS support
    Bundled with Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter apps

    Boost Mobile offers a $50 Unlimited talk, text, Internet, taxes and fees plan; the great thing is that they don’t require a contract. The phone itself is priced at $129.99 (excluding taxes) if purchased online through the link provided below.

    If you’re not familiar with Boost Mobile, they are division of Sprint Nextel and the service for this particular device runs on Sprint’s nationwide CDMA network. Aside from being able to purchase this handset online, the company is hoping to expand retail distribution to RadioShack as well as Target and Walmart soon.

    Sanyo Hand Warmers Are Cheap, Friendly, Toasty


    By Colin Ackerman

    We first heard about Sanyo’s Eneloop rechargeable hand warmers early last year, but apparently it’s taken them this long to make it to the states. There’s a new version, too… The original egg-shaped hand warmer gets warm on one side only (102° F in the low setting to 109° F on high, which they call “Turbo”), runs off a rechargeable lithium ion battery, and you get over 3 hours of heat for a 3 hour charge.

    The square hand warmer is the new one; it uses AA rechargeable batteries (Eneloops included) and also functions as a battery charger, which is pretty sweet. It warms up on both sides to 102° F on low and 115° F on high, and you’ll get between 1 and 3 hours of warmth for a 4.5 hour charge. So, it’s not as long lasting as the other model, but it’s heating both sides and using swappable batts, which is a major plus in my book.

    Best part about these things is the cheap factor: the one-sided warmer with the integrated battery is $35 (in white or pink), and the two-sided warmer that’s also a charger and includes 2 AA Eneloop rechargeable batteries is only $10 more (in silver or, um, ‘hot’ pink). You’ll find them at the online Sanyo store or “select retailers nationwide.”

    Sprint Gets Sanyo SCP-2700 Cheap Text Phone

    sanyoscp2700-sbBy Shane McGlaun

    I got a text from my mother-in-law the other day, which was weird. For one reason, I don’t like to talk to her that much, any married guy will understand. The other reason is that I didn’t know she knew what texting was and she has a phone that is older than my kids.

    Sprint has a new entry-level phone for people like her that are just getting into texting and want a cheap phone to make things easier. The Sanyo SCP-2700 is cheap enough at $29.99 after an instant $150 rebate, a $50 mail-in rebate, and a 2-year contract.

    The device sports a full QWERTY keyboard and can access work email from Exchange or Domino. The handset can also access the web and social networking sites. Other features include GPS navigation support, Sprint Family Locator Support, and picture mail support.
