In addition to the Kyocera Milano , Sprint announced the upcoming availability of the Kyocera Brio.

The Brio is a basic, no-frills cell phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, 2.2-inch QVGA display, and 1.3-megapixel camera. With the keyboard, the phone does support Sprint's Mobile Email and Mobile Email Work services, as well as access to popular e-mail clients like Yahoo, AOL, Gmail, and Windows Live.

The handset also has Bluetooth 2.0, 3G, a WAP 2.0 Web browser, and an expansion slot that supports up to 32GB cards.

The Kyocera Brill will be available September 9 for free with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate.
