Sanyo's slider for Orange 3G

Mobile phones

There’s still no official launch date for Orange’s 3G service in the UK. But with the mobile phone operator having slated a pre-Christmas roll-out, and with manufacturers announcing new 3G handsets, it can only be a matter of days.

Latest to join Orange’s 3G camp is Sanyo. Though a newcomer to the UK mobile phone market, the company has actually been producing handsets in Japan in exclusive partnerships with operators since 1994 and in the US for several years.

At a press conference, all of Sanyo’s top brass were wheeled out to tell us that they now plan to break into Europe.

But while the talk was confident – bordering on aggressive – the product announcement was decidedly modest. Just a single, lightweight slider style phone dubbed the S750. First impressions are generally positive. It’s not going to rock the design world but the 2.4inch 262K colour screen and 1.3 Megapixel camera with 4x zoom seemed quite good. So too did the user interface which was particularly easy to navigate around.


Key features:
* 2.4 inch QVGA screen
* Dual camera: 1.3Mb with flash, 310K pixel CCD
* 72 polyphonic ringtones
* Bluetooth, infra red, USB, Pictbridge
* Talk time: 170 mins (UMTS), 190 mins (GSM)

  • Dear Sir/Madam,
    I wish to make an enquiry on the said model of phone i saw on the site. I believe this is an opportunity i have been waiting for to embark on a nice business with you. However, i would like to know how you can start importing some of such phones to me so i will be marketing though i will first need a sample to entice my customers here, if you wish so too. I am a citizen of Nigeria and a graduate in Business Admin/Mgt with second class upper and currently deal on phones and assessories.
    i will really be very grateful if my humble request is granted.
    Thanks for your maximum co-operation as i am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
    Yours faithfully,
    Steve Eme
