Hi everybody, I'm Lynn La for c|net, and today we're going to check out the Kyocera DuraXV from Verizon Wireless. The DuraXV is a durable and waterproof feature phone that can survive up to 6 feet underwater for 30 minutes. Just make sure all its ports are rightly sealed before taking it out for a dip. Its rugged design also protects against shocks and drops and extreme temperatures. The device also features two screens: one external black and white display that's about an inch across and has a time and date and battery indicator. The other measures 2.4 inches and has a 240 by 320 pixel resolution. Below that is large alphanumeric keyboard with shortcut buttons to the camera and audio speaker. and a large speaker grill. The handset has a 5 megapixel camera that can record video. To show your photos and media there's 512 megs of internal memory plus the option to expand up to 32 gigs via a micro sv card. Parts wise. They also throw in a four gig micro SG card to get you started. This is all powered by a removable 1.5 ampuhour battery that has an estimated talk time of 7.7 hours and a standby time of about 18 days. If you're interested, the phone has a full retail price of $150 with a carrier contract and $200 without. Again I'm Lynn and you've been checking out Verizon's Keocera Dura XV. [MUSIC]
