Sprint refreshes the Katana Eclipse, adds an X
Sanyo's Katana Eclipse didn't exactly wow us when we recently reviewed it, but their One Click interface did so the new Eclipse X, featuring the new UI, is definitely an upgrade from the original.  Unfortunately there is nothing else new to report, it still features the same underwhelming feature set and high price point.  It is now offered in Nightlife Black and Hypnotic Pink; the black definitely looks much better than the original silver and pink is always a popular option.  The Eclipse X is available now from Sprint for the same $99 as the original.

those are cool looking phones for sprint...i have a question why does sprint and at&t seem to sponsor more things than vzw, like on tv shows. on desperate housewives last night, she was holding a phone that said sprint.

because verizon is a lot more popular and doesn't need the advertising. Sprint paid them to use their phones in the tv show to attempt to boost sales.

So, using your bizarre way of thinking, then Toyota or Honda shouldn't advertise? Because a company has higher sales than other companies they don't need to advertise? How do you thing VZW got to where they are? Just word of mouth? No, of course that helps, but companies like VZW or AT&T or Sprint/Nextel do not only rely on any one form of advertising. That is one of the most retarded things I've seen posted here, and there has been some really retarded things posted here. Well done Sir, You're a idiot of the highest degree. Now having said that, even as a 3rd Party Tech for Sprint, I'm getting tired of the ridiculous product placement on Sprints efforts. I can't watch Heroes without having 17 advertisements for Sprint being shoved into my brain. Just about every character on that show uses a Sprint phone (even though the brief shots they show of the phones, you can tell the phones aren't even on the right screen to be on a call/text messaging whatever).

whats even funnier is when the characters use a sprint phone in areas where there is no way they could work Like on heros last season where the girl used her sprint razr2 in ireland, or where horn rimmed glasses used his basic sprint phone in the ukraine. yay phones that work only in the us being shown working abroad!
