The first Sanyo Katana was hailed as one of Sprint's rare Razr competitors, but it didn't quite live up to its potential. That said, we still liked it as a decent, basic camera phone. Fast forward a year later, and Sanyo and Sprint have come up with the Sanyo Katana II. Though it does have a nicer and more modern design and it has a memory upgrade to 21MB, most of the features remain the same. Here are a few photos of the new Sanyo Katana II.

Is this a real RoboCop?
The K5 robot, developed by Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Knightscope, is designed to be a surveillance robot for law enforcement, private security firms, schools and anything else looking for an extra set of eyes and ears on the ground. The 5-foot, 300-pound robot can roam autonomously, sending back real time data about an area with technology that does facial recognition, lidar mapping and 360-degree video. CNET's Kara Tsuboi got a closer look at what makes the K5 robot tick.
