FCC approved the Sanyo Katana DLX
, the higher end version of the Katana series devices. The DLX is not successor of the first Katana, but a device from different class, replacement of the SCP-8400 and will come with the model number SCP-8500. It is EV-DO phone with microSD slot for memory and larger external display and camera than the 8400.
The replacement of the first Katana, the Katana II
or Sanyo SCP-6650 is nothing special feature-wise. It still lacks EV-DO and has small VGA camera and the things changed are bigger internal display (2.0” instead of 1.8) and slightly different design.
