The Sanyo Innuendo is the updated and upgraded version of the Sanyo Incognito. Yashuhiro Oishi, company vice president, said that they took the "very popular Sanyo Incognito and improved on it in every way" to create the final version of the Innuendo. It not only has software and hardware upgrades, it also sports a significantly improved physical appearance. The phone made its debut on the market in September of 2010.
The most noticeable element of the redesign is the phone's new shape. The phone was given a subtle s-curve silhouette and a side open clam shell design. The front panel has a glow-thru dialing pad that eliminates the need to open the phone to make a simple phone call. The new design is extremely thin and lightweight, making it comfortable and convenient to carry in a pants pocket or small clutch-style purse.
The phone has a newly redesigned QWERTY keypad, with one touch keys for emoticons and multi media message attachment. The phone is also fully compatible with Windows Live, Yahoo and Gmail email accounts, and offers calendar synching between devices.
The camera on the Innuendo will take not only photos but also short videos. The camera is a 3.2 MP device with night mode, a timer and multi-shot settings. It also has a proximity sensor to help center and focus pictures. The phone also has a microSD card slot that allows users to expand the memory for additional photo storage.
Need to Know: Sanyo Innuendo
1. Only 15mm thick making it light weight and easy to carry. (The Good)
2. The new lithium ion battery is long-lasting, giving users up to 4.5 hours of talk time. (The Good)
3. The one touch key board allows users to text message and email contacts quickly and easily. (The Good)
4. Programs do not close automatically when you close the phone. So, if you were playing a game and closed the phone without exiting the program, it is continuing to run. This is a problem because not only will the phone not let you place a call until all programs are closed out, it will also run your battery down quickly. (The Bad)
