Kyocera X-tc and JAX introduced by Virgin Mobile

Two new handsets have been recently introduced by Virgin Mobile USA, both manufactured by Kyocera.

Only the first device, Kyocera X-tc, seems to be available for purchase right away, offered by Virgin for $99 – no contract required. 

The X-tc is an entry-level phone with a sliding QWERTY keyboard, so it’s in the same league as Sprint’s LG Rumor2 (or LG Banter, if you’re on the Alltel side). 

Overall, the handset doesn’t look bad at all:



Its specs and features include:

  • QVGA display with 262K colors
  • Stereo Bluetooth
  • Dedicated music keys
  • Mobile Web
  • Email, IM
  • Facebook Mobile
  • Voice dialing
  • 1.3MP camera
  • MicroSD card support
  • Talk time: up to 250 minutes
  • Standby time:  up to 200 hours
  • 4.37 x 2.05 x 0.68 inches
  • 3.89 ounces

The second new phone, Kyocera JAX, seems to be Virgin’s version of Kyocera S1300, which was launched by Cricket last month. 


The JAX is a 13-mm thick candybar that features a 128 x 160 pixels display, Web browser, text messaging and “real music ringtones”. Its price and release date are not known for the moment.
