Water-resistant Kyocera Hydro Edge reaches Sprint, Boost this month
Kyocera is introducing a new water-resistant phone, that will be heading to Sprint and Boost Mobile later this month. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289574==http://kyocerasmartphones.com/hydro-edge/" rel='nofollow'>Kyocera Hydro Edge</a>, remarkably similar to the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289575==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/05/22/new.rugged.budget.smartphone/" rel='nofollow'>Hydro Xtrm</a> shown to <em>Electronista</em> at CTIA's spring show, follows on from the IPX5 and IPX7-rated <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289576==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/07/17/kyocera.hydro.has.android.40.and.can.stay.submerge d.in.water/" rel='nofollow'>Hydro</a> released last year by being able to be submerged in three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. <br />
<br />
Aside from it's water resistance, the Hydro Edge houses a dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon running at 1GHz with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of storage. Running on Android 4.1, it has a four-inch 800x480 display, a rear five-megapixel camera, and uses the company's Smart Sonic Reciever technology, which allows for audio to be heard using a ceramic transducer transmitting vibrations through the screen via cartilage around the ear. <br />
<br />
Sprint will be offering the Hydro Edge from July 19th for $20 on a two-year agreement after a $50 rebate, while Boost Mobile will stock it for $150 as a prepaid device from July 23rd.
