Telecom is launching the New Sanyo 6600 Ice, which comes in both black and white. Features include Bluetooth and a VGA camera at a price point of $499 on a Telecom CDMA Open Term plan or Go Prepaid.

For more information visit the Telecom website;

Looks like a good phone, and is offers customer who liked the styling of the Samsung A900 an opportunity to own a similar phone at a lower price point.

I take it this is another RAZR wannabe? The features look good and the price is reasonable, but I personally think it looks quite ugly.

in the morning, I am off to get one of these to replace my 6265, as my Apache is now my primary phone, so i want a much smaller unit as my secondary.

Assuming its as nice to use as other Sanyos of course.

I played with one briefly a few weeks ago, I thought it was a dummy because it was so light, but i pressed a key and it lit up!!
