The Sanyo Katana DLX is one of the best Sanyo handsets we've seen so far. Not only is it a slim and sleek flip phone, it also comes loaded with lots of features: a 1.3-megapixel camera, EV-DO support, a music player, a microSD card slot, and more.

So you're not willing to share your abode with a full-size arcade machine? Wimp. If you're the type who does things only halfway--or if you just want to stay happily married--you might be interested in this model instead.
The "Katana" from Dream Authentics is a customizable game machine that's intended to replicate the arcade experience of our misspent youth, save for one difference: It sits on a table top. The purist might object to this, as it's kind of like playing craps while sitting on a barstool; but if you're short on space (… Read more
