Sanyo S750 (S103) UMTS


Please Note that S750 is known as S103 in Asian markets

Sanyo claims that S750 currently has the handset market’s largest screen – a 2.4-inch QVGA unit with 262K colours. Plus it has a Flash for indoor photography. And there’s a second 310K pixel CCD camera for videocalling.

Although the S750 has only 8MB of internal memory, it has an external – hot swappable – SD card slot which apparently accepts cards up to 256MB. Strange since larger capacity cards are available.

As a first attempt to please European customers, the S750's user interface was pretty average. For example, the INQ tried associating a telephone number with the caller’s picture. This feature is present but just couldn’t be found. On the plus side, the S750 boasts an amusing picture edit facility which enables silly graphics – like a handlebar moustache – to be added to a person’s picture.

The blurb claimed that the S750 can act as a modem via infrared and Bluetooth. The INQ tried this via infrared and failed. On the Bluetooth side, howevere, it received a business card OK so we don’t anticipate any problems.

There’s also a facility The INQ has never encountered before called Pictbridge. This enables the owner to connect the S750 directly to a printer via a USB cable. Sounds intriguing but it wasn’t demonstrated.

One feature which is easily overlooked is that the S750 will work on GSM/PCS 1900 networks in North America as well as GSM 900/1800 plus 3G (UMTS) networks of course. Sanyo produced the first ever single mode UMTS handset for KDDI in Japan back in 2001 and the first UMTS/GSM handset back in 2003 so it’s got an established track record here.
