Virgin Mobile has just added a new Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich device to their lineup. The Kyocera Rise is now official and you can purchase the device for only $100 and that’s the price without the need for a contract. If you’re looking for a nice mid-range device, then check out this handset. It features a 3.2MP camera, full slide out QWERTY keyboard, 2GB of internal storage and a 1GHZ processor. The full presser with more launch details follows the break.
The Kyocera Rise with a full QWERTY keyboard. Now on Virgin Mobile USA without a contract and with our unlimited data and messaging Beyond Talk plans starting at $35/month
The Rise is available right now – just in time for back to school – for $99.99 online, at select dealers and Virgin Mobile’s own branded stores. It will roll out across national retail outlets starting in late September.
Awesome features include:
Touch Slider with QWERTY Keyboard and a 3.5″ HVGA LCD Touchscreen [we think of it as quite the "texty beast!"]
Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon Processor
Google Play for access to over 600,000 apps
3.2MP Camera, LED Flash and Video Capture
microSD Card Slot – supports up to 32GB
Swype for rapid text entry
Eco Mode for better battery management
This is a great choice for first-time Android users, including parents looking for that great first smartphone for teens and tweens, or seniors. Customers get to move into touchscreen smartphone territory while still keeping the ease and familiarity of a keyboard, and at an affordable price.
