Excerpt: The Sanyo Katana Eclipse is the fifth in the Katana franchise and holds its own quite well. This CDMA clamshell has a modern, glossy look and feel and comes with a mid-range feature set sure to please the casual user and pernicious alike. Measuring only 3.6 x 1.9 x 0.7 inches and weighing just 3.4 ounces, the Eclipse is small, but small in a good way, not cramped or difficult to use.
