The MM-5600 by Sanyo allows consumers to listen to stereo-quality music; take, share, and print quality photos; and view the latest video content from nationally recognized brands in the news and entertainment industry at up to 15 frames per sec with the built-in media player. The phone will be available in mid-March.

The phone has a 1.3-megapixel camera with flash, digital zoom, and macro setting for capturing close-ups and a video camcorder. The device comes packaged with a 16 MB removable miniSD memory card and adapter, plus stereo earphones and USB cable for printing photos directly from the phone to any PictBridge-enabled printer.

The phone supports Picture Mail(SM) and Sprint PCS Video Mail optional services, for consumers to share pictures, video, and audio right from the phone direct to other compatible phones or to any email address. Images can be stored on the miniSD card to expand storage space.

The miniSD card offers a portable way to store high-resolution images, video clips, and music files. The files on the card can be downloaded to a PC for backup. With the included adapter, the miniSD card can be used to exchange data with select SD-compatible devices, such as PocketPCs, digital cameras, and other handheld devices.

The built-in 1.3-megapixel camera with flash, digital zoom, and macro settings for capturing close-ups captures photos with resolution quality to make 4 in by 6 in prints. The phone features a QVGA-resolution TFT LCD screen. The 260,000-color screen and 240 by 320 resolution provide sharp detail of objects when viewing videos, photos, games, and other images on the phone.

The miniSD card with adapter can be used to print photos from a printer or kiosk that supports SD cards. Consumers can also print images stored on the phone or miniSD card by connecting directly to a PictBridge-enabled printer.

With Sprint PCS Video Mail, consumers can also shoot 30-sec video clips with the built-in camcorder to be wirelessly shared. With an optional 128 MB or larger miniSD card, consumers can shoot up to 90 min of video. (
