Sanyo SCP-7050 for Sprint

Sanyo on Tuesday unveiled its SCP-7050 phone for Sprint's more active users. The 7050's rubberized outer shell makes it the first Sanyo phone to survive US military-grade dust, shock, and vibration standards; its controls are also designed such that the buttons are usable even with gloves on, the company says. Fully autonomous GPS is part of the package and works whether other phone functions are in use or the cellphone drops off of Sprint's network.

Multiple other concessions are in place for outdoors owners or field workers: a mobile contact sync feature automatically creates backups of the contact list on Sprint's servers to retrieve them if the phone is lost, and a large speaker helps keep the phone hands-free during a hike or rough work. Sprint will offer the phone in early April for $150 alongside a two-year contract.
