Sanyo Vero for Sprint: the headline feature is the price

Chris Ziegler

Have $10 to spend and a willingness to sign your name on a dotted line? Well, has Sprint got a deal for you: the new Vero clamshell from Sanyo swings in at an easy-to-swallow $9.99 on contract. Of course, at that price, you make certain sacrifices; it's got a mere 1.3 megapixel cam, a 2.5mm (yes, 2.5mm, not 3.5mm) headphone jack, and little else, though it does manage to pack in a few trick features like stereo Bluetooth and threaded messaging. When phones like the Pixi are being offered in the same store for free, it makes $10 sound a little pricey -- but after a couple years of bills, we imagine you'll make your money back. The Vero's available starting today.
