CNET First Look
Hang loose with the Kyocera KonaCricket's Kyocera Kona is aimed for users who need just the basics, and features a 2-megapixel camera, Internet connectivity, and a nostalgic flip-phone construction.
Hi everybody, it's Lynn La from CNET and, right now, we're gonna take a look at the Kyocera Kona from Cricket Wireless. Now, this device obviously isn't the most high tech handset on the market, but the Kona is designed for those looking for something simple and easy to use. As a 1.44-inch external display that shows important like the date, time and battery life. On the inside, you'll get a 2.4-inch display, spacious alpha numeric keypad and shortcut buttons for the camera and speaker. The Kona comes with a few applications like a calendar, a calculator and Bluetooth 2.1. It also has 256 migs of RANGE OF MOTION and 128 migs of RAM. The phone operates on Cricket's 2G network so you can browse a web, send emails and turn on GPS, albeit it all works very slowly. On the back, there's a 2-megapixel camera that has some features like different white balance options and a digital zoom, but it lacks a flash and recording capabilities. If you're interested, the handset is currently going for $29.99 without a contract. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out Cricket's Kyocera Kona.
