[MUSIC] Hello everybody, it's Lynn La from CNET and today we're gonna take a look at a feature phone this time. It's called the Kyocera Verve for Sprint and Boost Mobile. Now as you can see this is a very simple device. You won't get the latest smart phone features and performance speed. But it includes basic tools for everyday use like a calculator, alarm clock and a very basic web browser. The device sports a 2.4 inch QVGA display with a 320 by 240 pixel resolution. In addition to the alphanumeric keyboard, under its screen, there is also a sliding four row keyboard underneath, which includes four directional keys too. The handset is powered by a 1.1 ampere-hour battery which has a reported talk time of up to 6.3 hours. Users will also get a two megapixel camera on the back, which you can launch with this shortcut key here. There's also Bluetooth 2.1 and 512 megs of internal storage. For all you Sprint customers out there who are interested, this phone is available in gray and pink. Boost users can get it in blue for $50 prepaid. Again, I'm Lynn, and you've been checking out the Kyocera Verve. [MUSIC]
