The entry-level Kyocera Event from Virgin Mobile is a reasonably priced 3G handset running Android 4.0. It features a 3.2-megapixel camera, a 1GHz processor, and a 1,500mAh battery.

Hi, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET and today we're gonna check out the Kyocera Event from Virgin Mobile. This compact entry-level device supports a 3.5-inch HVGA touch screen and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is 3G enabled is powered by a 1 GHz processor and a 1.5 ampere-hour battery. This will give you a reported talk time of about 8.7 hours. On the back is a 3.2-megapixel camera that takes surprisingly decent photos and it could record 480p video. Some software features include Eco Mode, which is an energy and battery conserving module and MagniFont. This increases the font size even larger than the usual Mac setting. Additional features are Bluetooth 2.1, 4 gigs of internal storage and up to 32 gigs of expandable memory. If you're interested, the handset comes in 2 color accents, red and black and is currently available for $79.99 with no contract. Again, I'm Lynn and this has been Virgin Mobile's Kyocera Event.
