Kyocera Cyclops Phone

Virgin Mobile announced on Tuesday that it would begin carrying a designer flip-phone from Kyocera that will also mark the introduction of new features on the former's cellular network. The Cyclops is a style-oriented phone in Virgin's signature red and white that revolves around a central, 1.3-megapixel camera. The design also features a slim external display for caller ID and ships with games including Lumines Mobile.

More importantly, Virgin says, the Cyclops is capable of both TXT Tones, ringtones that are connected to text messages instead of phone calls, as well as Virgin Mobile Audio Messaging, an instant messaging system that allows recorded voice messages to be sent to others with real-time notification as they arrive. TXT Tones will be available for $1.50 each and will prominently feature music from Warner Music. Owners of the Cyclops phone will also receive 100 free Virgin Audio Messages every month, though the company didn't reveal pricing for these messages beyond the initial amount. The Cyclops itself ships November 2nd for $100.
