We saw it at CTIA earlier this year, but the Katana LX has now finally launched with Sprint. The sequel to the Katana II, the Katana LX retains the same basic feature set--Bluetooth, VGA camera, and speakerphone--but it has a whole new look. The Katana LX has a much sportier look and compact shape, plus a translucent OLED front display. Sure it isn't much, but for $49.99 with a two-year service agreement, it's meant to be an entry-level phone anyway. It's available in Pacific Blue, Elegant Pink, and Liquid Graphite, and you can take a peek at it in our Sanyo CTIA slide show here.
