Kyocera, a leading manufacturer of CDMA devices, just announced five new-look handsets from its 2007 product lineup at the CTIA Wireless 2007 trade show. Let’s start by introducing each one of them briefly…
Kyocera E5000 is an elegant, slim handset featuring a new kind of clamshell design – patent-pending sculpted “S” hinge made of stainless steel. This device sports a high-speed 1xEV-DO, a 1.3 MP camera, a 2″ QCIF+ internal TFT display, the touch-sensitive external music controls, a Bluetooth with A2DP support and its memory is expandable with microSD cards. The E5000 will be available in the fall this year.
Kyocera E2000 is a stylish mid-range device that impresses with its high-gloss black exterior. In terms of specs, the E2000 brings the same features as E5000. Announced availability date is also the same (fall 2007).
Kyocera E1000 is stylish low-end device that boasts a 1.3 MP camera and a Bluetooth connectivity. The E1000 uses cost-effective CDMA2000 1xRTT technology, and is set to be released this summer.
For SMS junkies, Kyocera prepared its M1000 model that comes with a full QWERTY keypad. Interesting thing about the M1000, it can be used in both open and closed mode. The device also packs a 1.3 MP camera, two TFT displays (internal – 1.8″, external – 1.5″), and will hit the carriers’ offerings on summer 2007.
Kyocera S1000 is a real low-end device. If you need an affordable handset, you can’t get many phones that will be more affordable than the S1000. It’s designed for someone who simply wants to make a call and doesn’t want to pay anything extra for features they may not use. Availability: summer 2007.
