Kyocera Milan KX9C

The Kyocera Milan KX9C is a basic flip phone for U.S. Cellular. Though its design and silver color scheme are basic, it does feature a unique, external display that runs vertically down the front of the phone. At 3.5 by 1.8 by 0.9 inches and 3.5 ounces, it's relatively compact despite the stubby external antenna.

Inside the phone is a 65,000-color, 128-by-128-pixel pixel display. Features include a 200-contact phone book, a vibrate mode, text messaging, basic PIM functions, instant messaging, a speakerphone, voice dialing, and a wireless Web browser. The promised battery life is 3.3 hours talk time and 8.3 days standby time. The dual-band (CDMA 800/1900) Kyocera Milan KX9C is priced at $59 with service.
