Sprint launches rugged Kyocera DuraXT for Direct Connect users
Sprint has introduced another handset made by Kyocera: the Kyocera DuraXT. Just like the Kyocera DuraPlus (available since earlier this year), the DuraXT is a rugged phone that comes with Sprint’s Direct Connect push-to-talk feature.
The new handset is a clamshell encased in a resistant Dura-Grip material, and can be immersed for 30 minutes in water (up to 1 meter). Other features include: Qualcomm’s Brew MP, a 2 inch QVGA internal display, 1 inch external display with 96 x 64 pixels, 3G, NextMail, Sprint Mobile Sync, speaker-independent voice-activated dialing, 3.2MP camera with flash, MicroSD card support (up to 32GB), and a 1,360 mAh battery that can provide up to 8 hours of talk-time.
Sprint is selling the Kyocera DuraXT online for $69.99 with a new 2-yr contract agreement.
