Well, there you have it: the very real-looking Katana Eclipse pictured in that leaked Sprint roadmap
is, in fact, real. The upcoming clamshell flew right on through the FCC recently (filed under new parent Kyocera's
name, no less) bearing the expected external music controls and an evolutionary design that's kinda sorta reminiscent of everything that makes the Katana
series, the Katana series. We've got EV-DO in here, too, so if we had to guess, this will end up slotting in somewhere toward the bottom of Sprint's midrange when it goes on sale -- which may or may not be August 17 depending on the accuracy of said roadmap.
