Sprint now offers two Camera Phones. The Sanyo 5300 is on the market since a couple of month. Since last week the Sanyo 8100 is available.
Here some pointers on how to decide which camera phone to get.
First there is the price. The Sanyo 5300 is even with rebate still around $300.
The Sanyo 8100 is after rebate only $99.
The other big difference is in the camera functionality. The 5300 features a built-in Flash, the 8100 does not have a flash. Additionally the resolution of the photos is 640x480 full VGA on the 5300 and only 352x288 on the 8100.

As you can see yourselves in the specifications below of the Sanyo 5300 and Sanyo 8100 there are not many other differences.

For my part i did not want to spend $300 on a Camera Phone and waited for the 8100.
