Sanyo's W41SA clamshell scans handwriting


Sanyo's new clamshell phone W41SA, introduced at this year's CeBit trade show, unlike other handsets for the Japanese market doesn't support a multi-mega pixels camera, but is capable of scanning handwriting. After scanning a piece of paper with some writing on it, the device can merge it with a normal photo, taken with its 1.3 mega pixels camera. What users get in the end is the original photo with the handwritten text on it as can be seen on the pictures below.



The CDMA handset is slim, although it packs quite a few features. It measures 1.9 x 3.9 x 0.8 in (49 × 99 × 21 mm) and weighs 3.8oz (180g). The main features include:

  • 2.3-inch QVGA TFT display
  • 1.3 mega pixels camera
  • EV-DO high-speed data
  • 50MB internal memory
  • miniSD memory expansion slot
  • Music player
  • Stereo speakers
  • FM radio
  • TV remote control functionality
