Funky TV phones from Sanyo

Sanyo has these "Infobar 2" phones showing at their booth, in lots of funky colors. They are quite large (about 1.5"/40mm longer than a standard candy bar phone, and relatively thick), but have a nice rounded smooth shape to them and interesting texture finishes. The smooth keys make them a bit of a challenge to use, but the 2.6" OLED screen has a 16:9 ratio that is geared toward watching movies and TV. They come with a built-in digital TV tuner.

They also come with a docking stand that charges the phone and keeps the screen at an angle for viewing.

Doesn't sound like they'll be coming to the US - CDMA only.
