Kyocera unveils 5 new phones

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…

5 new Kyocera phones

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.
