Kyocera Event joins the pre-paid Virgin Mobile USA lineup

Virgin Mobile USA has announced their latest Android smartphone. The handset is the Kyocera Event and it joins the pre-paid device lineup with a price point of just $79.99. Of course, given the low contract-free price, one may come to the assumption that the specs are not what could be described as high-end. Truth be told, that would be true, but remember -- the point here is a low handset price and a low monthly price. And to achieve that, you sometimes need a trade-off.

Kyocera Katsura Android “Gaming Tablet” Photos Leaked [EXCLUSIVE]

Well this is odd, to say the least. We've been passed some relatively blurry photos of what our super secret source is telling us is called the Kyocera "Katsura." Our source preferred to remain anonymous but didn't mind being called "our man in Eastern Europe." He wouldn't say where he was living, or where the photos were taken, but we've got to assume it's within a few fathoms of Kyoto Japan, since that's where Kyocera is based, yet still in an area where Euros are used, as a 10p Euro coin is pictured in one of the photos.

Sprint Kyocera Echo Startup Sequence [EXCLUSIVE]

Whilst having another look at the Kyocera Echo at the Kyocera booth during CTIA 2011, we happened upon a unit that was switched off. Deciding to check to see if anything magical would happen if we switched the device on while filming, we hit the on button with our camera rolling. As it happens, it does indeed have a unique startup sequence, and now in this video you're going to get to see it! Apologies in advance for the undeniably horribly terribly screen full of fingermarks! Take it as a sign that a lot of people are pumped up about this phone.
