Impressed by the new Katana DLX

This Sprint phone isn't much to look at, but it delivers.

Looks truly aren't everything, as evidenced by this remarkable Sprint Katana DLX. While basic in appearance, this Sprint offering raises the bar in features.

Two words epitomize this gem: speed and availability. Live TV (though not via the superior DVB-H platform), fast Web access, a current--dare I say almost complete--over-the-air music list that easily justifies it's 99 cents per song download, a solid 1.3 megapixel camera, easy contacts transfer, supports up to a 4 gig microSD, etc.

And may I also add, call quality is excellent. It's from Sanyo, which may be the most underrated cell phone manufacturer around.

Oh...it's also very light, comfortable, and affordable. I continue to be amazed at what I discover. This ain't your brother's Katana. Wow!

With stunning lines and sharp handling, the F-type S Coupe is an excellent sports car, and as impractical as a true sports car should be.
