Sanyo SCP-7000 at Sprint

In addition to the M1 music phone, Sprint today also began carrying the SCP-7000, a toughened phone meant primarily to survive the oftentimes rough use by children. A rubber trim covering a large portion of the handset both aids in maintaining a safe grip and better resists against cracks due to drops.

Equal protection is offered by the software, Sprint says. Parental controls are built in that can limit access to specific inbound or outbound phone numbers as well as curb the use of Sprint's multimedia services. The company offers the phone now for $180 at retail stores but will lower the price to $30 when tied to a two-year agreement.
