Just as the holiday shopping season is reaching its peak, Kyocera on Friday dished out three new cell phones that offer midrange features in varying designs.
The Kyocera Torino S2300 is a squat candy bar phone with a touch screen and a full QWERTY keyboard. The feature set offers 3G, Bluetooth 2.0, a megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, and threaded text messaging.
The Kyocera Domino S1310 has a simple candy bar design in bright orange. Inside are Bluetooth 2.0, a WAP 2.0 browser, support for BREW, text and instant messaging, a personal organizer, and a speakerphone.
Kyocera also introduced a new handset under the Sanyo brand. The SCP-6760 Incognito is a candy bar phone that opens to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. The style is similar to Kyocera's Wild Card, except it appears to be a bit more refined. Features include a 2.2 display, a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, threaded text messaging, instant messaging and e-mail, a speakerphone, voice dialing, USB mass storage, a 2.5 mm headset jack, and BREW support.
The Incognito will be first out of the gate with a November 30 launch date for Sprint. The Domino will follow in December and the Torino will go on sale next February.
