Kyocera Android Smartphones
"Kyocera has been making water-resistant smartphones globally since 2008, ranging from handsets for children to full Mil Spec, ultra-ruggedized devices, and the Kyocera Hydro is our seventeenth so far," said Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of global sales and marketing at Kyocera. "Wireless devices have become so crucial to our everyday lives; their durability must support our lifestyles. The Kyocera Hydro Android Smartphone combines a sleek, touchscreen design with water resistance to ensure it can withstand the spills and drops of everyday life."
Kyocera Rise features
The Kyocera Rise, with its slide-out QWERTY keypad, measures 4.44 x 2.38 x 0.56 in. (in closed position) and weighs 5.54 oz. The Kyocera Rise smartphone offers the best of both worlds for diehard QWERTY users and feature-phone users looking to move up to a smartphone: an easy-to-use slide-out keypad and a high-resolution touchscreen in an Android 4.0 handset. A survey by Yankee Group earlier this year revealed that 69% of consumers called a QWERTY keypad a "must have" or "nice to have" feature on their devices.
"For some people, keys are the key feature, yet there are very few QWERTY smartphones on the market to meet this demand," said Anderson. "The Kyocera Rise is the ideal Android Smartphone for those underserved consumers for whom a touchscreen isn't enough and who demand the familiar tactile feedback of a keypad. With both Kyocera Android Smartphones, people have spoken loud and clear about what they want, and we've listened."
