BARCELONA -- At MWC this year, Kyocera showed off some of its early prototype and concept devices, some of which help users survive emergency and extreme situations, while others have innovative power sources.
Due to its current inefficiencies, however -- the model requires 2
hours of charging to give you an extra 5 minutes of talk time --
Kyocera won't be ready to release a working solar-charging handset until
it can boost its performance.
Another idea the company envisioned was a line of durable handsets that you can
customize according to your needs. All phones will have a rugged "core"
platform, that can then have different degrees of ruggedness.
