Sprint announces Kyocera Torque
The Kyocera Torque is definitely a smartphone that you might want to bring with you wherever you go, especially when you tend to go on a whole lot of outdoor trips. The reason we say this is, Sprint’s Kyocera Torque holds the honor of being the first ultra-rugged 4G LTE Android-powered smartphone that comes complete with Sprint Direct Connect and Smart Sonic Receiver Audio technology, allowing it to handle drops, dunks, and spills this coming March 8th, going for just $99.99.
In fact, Bear Grylls, the ultimate adventurer and fun-loving dude who loves to live it out in the wild, is the perfect example to parade the Kyocera Torque, as both of them are more than capable of surviving in the extremes, while working just fine in everyday life to boot.
The ultra-rugged, 4G LTE Android smartphone will run on Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, sport up to 18.9 hours of talk time, and of course, with Sprint’s Truly Unlimited 4G LTE data, text and calling to any mobile device, you are not limited to metering, throttling, and overages, now how about that?
The Kyocera Torque was specially built to Military Standard 810G, allowing it to withstand dust, shock, vibration, solar radiation, humidity, blowing rain, low pressure, salt fog and extreme temperatures, in addition to IP67 standards for dust, sprayed water and full immersion of up to one meter deep for up to half an hour. There is also the Sprint Direct Connect push-to-talk service, and is America’s first device to include Kyocera’s award-winning new Smart Sonic Receiver technology.
David Owens, vice president-Product Development, Sprint, said, “The durability and sound quality of Torque are amazing for a 4G LTE smartphone. Whether you’re on a construction site, an outdoor adventurer or a mom that worries about their kids breaking their phone, Torque can hold up to those drops, spills or dunks. With Sprint’s 4G LTE network and truly unlimited 4G data, text and calling plans, it’s a tremendous offer for business customers, busy kids and adventurers alike.”
