Sprint has unveiled a couple of “meh” phones, but knowing how the target demographic for the middle class is the largest, it makes perfect sense to cater for those who do not want high end specifications in a phone simply because they know they’re too clumsy to take good care of a top end model. Hence, ruining or breaking a mid-range or entry-level handset is a whole lot easier on the pocket (and heart), which is why Sprint has announced the Kyocera Milano and Kyocera Brio.
The former will be perfect for heavy texters as well as those who are new to the Android platform, being touted to be an entry-level “QWERTY plus touchscreen” smartphone that runs on Android 2.3, Gingerbread alongside Sprint ID. As for the Kyocera Brio, this is a hassle free manner to keep in touch with your loved ones without any trappings of modern smartphones.
Both handsets will launch tomorrow (September 9th) at all Sprint retail channels as well as online, with the Kyocera Milano priced at $49.99 while the Kyocera Brio goes for nothing – either way, you will need to agree to a 2-year contract. [Press Release]
