NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --


Kyocera Communications, Inc. a provider of Kyocera- and Sanyo-branded wireless phones in the Americas.


Wednesday, September 14th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm EDT.


Pepcom's Holiday Spectacular! at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City.


Kyocera is providing demos of two new entry-level handsets for Sprint, just announced last week:

Brio – a free* QWERTY-keyboard feature phone with parental controls and Sprint Family Locator.

Milano – a $49* Android™ (Gingerbread) touchscreen phone with slide-out QWERTY keyboard, perfect for the first-time Android user or text-heavy user unwilling to give up a tactile keypad. With a distinctive rounded shape and soft-touch paint on the back, Milano is easy to hold and use yet its small size makes it easy to slide into a pocket.

Additionally, Sprint and Kyocera are providing a first-look at the ruggedized Kyocera DuraMax and DuraCore handsets, featuring Sprint's upcoming Direct Connect CDMA push-to-talk service and launching in Q4:

DuraMax – a rubber-encased (DuraGrip®) clamshell with a 3.2 megapixel camera and expandable memory slot (up to 32GB), DuraMax meets military standard 810G specifications for dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain and immersion and is water resistant when submerged up to one meter for up to 30 minutes. Kyocera will be demonstrating DuraMax's water resistance at Pepcom.

DuraCore – a rubber-encased (DuraGrip) clamshell meeting military standard 810G specifications for dust, shock and vibration that is an affordable, high-impact solution for a mobile workforce that relies on push-to-talk.

Kyocera will also be showing Luno, an entry-level phone for Cricket, and its award-winning Echo, the world's first dual-touchscreen mobile phone exclusively with Sprint.

* with 2-year service agreement or eligible upgrade.
