Kyocera Zio M6000

The Zio has a standard candy bar design with a 3.5-inch touch screen. It has three customizable home screens and the Android pull-tab at the bottom of the display calls up the menu. Below the display are a navigation trackball, four touch controls, and the Talk and End/power buttons.

Kyocera didn't customize the Android virtual keyboard. Thanks to the Zio's accelerometer, the keyboard changes to a landscape orientation when you rotate the phone.
