1:06 /

Available for $59.99 on April 21 from Cricket Wireless, the Kyocera Kona is a simple feature phone that has a 2-megapixel camera, a 2.4-inch screen, and dual displays.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET. And today, we're gonna take a quick look at the Kyocera Kona from Cricket Wireless. Now, the Kona is a very simple flip phone. It's for anyone who's just looking for talking and texting features. It has a 2.4-inch display and on the front it has a 1.4-inch color display that shows like the time and the date and the battery life. It runs on Cricket's 2G network and on the back here is a 2-megapixel camera. And it runs on 870 milliampere-hour battery. It also has Bluetooth capabilities and just kind of like your basic functions like your calendar, a few games and app, it holds your contacts obviously, and it has some voice services like voice recognition and voice memo. Now, so far, there is no pricing information but it should be available around mid March. Again, I'm Lynn from CNET. And this is the Kyocera Kona from Cricket Wireless.
