Sanyo Taho Rugged PhoneJust fresh from the oven is Sprint’s latest offering in the flip-styled phone devices. This time the company gets a mobile phone codenamed as Taho by Kyocera which falls under the Sanyo brand. The Sanyo Taho flip phone is even dubbed as the first fully submersible device coming from Sprint. Ho-ho, I guess outdoorsmen such as skiers, surfers, fishermen, etc will have something to look forward to.

Specs and features-wise, the Sanyo Taho mobile phone sports a 2-inch QVGA display on the inside, and an inch monochrome display on the outside. Moreover, it gets a 2-megapixel camera with flash and capable of video recording, music player, E-mail, stereo Bluetooth, Web browser, and a support for MicroSD card slot of up to 32GB. Other features of the handset include Ev-Do connectivity as well as Sprint’s proprietary software such as Navigation and Family Locator. Moreover, it promises up to 6.1 hours of talk time on a single charge.

But the most awaited feature of the device is actually its capability to be submerged in water for half an hour up to one meter deep. Finally, the handset has met the military standard 810G therefore allowing the device to withstand any shock, vibration, moisture, extreme temperatures, and dust.

The clamshell device, Sanyo Taho, is already available online via Sprint’s Website. The rugged flip phone will have its vast availability at other Sprint channels beginning January 2011. The phone can be purchased at a price of $99.99 on a two-year contract. So, if you are among the men who spend time in outdoor pursuits, then the new Sanyo Taho mobile phone is exactly what you need.
