Sanyo SCP-6000 Mobile Phone

Sanyo SCP-6000 Mobile Phone

Anyone who has visited Japan in the last few years knows that slim cell phones are nothing out of the ordinary. In fact, most items in Japan are small in comparison to their US counterparts.

In the United States, the new Sanyo SCP-6000 will certainly stick out as a crowd pleaser. At 2.29 ounces, the SCP-6000 is  currently the lightest mobile phone in the US market. The first thing you will notice is the Magnesium Alloy front case indicating that not only is this phone state of the art, its durable as well. In a world where a cell phone, pager and PDA are not uncommon, making more room for the latter is a pleasurable experience.

While the SCP-6000 is slim, the phone is actually bulging with features. Just about everything on the SCP-6000 is customizable. You can even download wallpaper and images for incoming phones. We are looking forward to getting our hands on one of these units for a full review. Features and specifications are below.
