Sanyo's ultra-rugged 7050 is the first Sanyo phone that adheres to Military Standard 810F for dust, shock and vibration. Ideal for business users with mobile field operations such as those in construction, maintenance and other tough environments, the 7050 by Sanyo is also perfect for outdoor enthusiasts who will appreciate the phone for the textured anti-slip rubber grip that wraps around the back and sides of the phone, offering a sure hold and added surface protection. The 7050 also supports advanced GPS-based Java applications and Bluetooth wireless technology for enhanced workforce productivity.

Sanyo 7050 Price & Availability
The Sanyo 7050 by Sanyo is available through Sprint retail channels. Suggested retail price is $99.99 with a two-year subscriber agreement. "The ultra-rugged, military spec design of the Sanyo 7050 is a great feature, but its true strength comes from a combination of capabilities that include Java MVM support, autonomous GPS, and enhanced Bluetooth capabilities," said Andy Kodera, senior vice president and general manager of Sanyo Fisher Company's Wireless Communications Division. "Many of our phones already support GPS navigation, but this is really the first rugged CDMA phone from Sprint that supports Sprint's more advanced GPS business applications. The Sanyo 7050 finally makes these applications available to Sprint's many CDMA business customers who need a durable phone for their field personnel."

The advanced GPS capabilities of the phone allow it to keep up with demanding users such as those in construction, maintenance, transportation, and other field operation industries. The Sanyo 7050 offers autonomous GPS that allows location data to be captured even when the user has taken the phone off the wireless network. In addition, Java MVM allows the phone to run multiple JAVA applications simultaneously. The combination of Java MVM and location based GPS allows the phone to support advanced navigation, tracking and management applications. Applications such as Comet Tracker by ActSoft, Gearworks etrace, TeleNav Track, and Xora GPS TimeTrack provide GPS tracking, job dispatching, location-intelligent timecards, configurable forms, geofencing, and more.
