Kyocera K323 at Verizon
US cellular network Verizon today said it would carry the Kyocera K323 cellphone. Though the phone is meant for cost-conscious subscribers, it includes features not always present on other devices in its class. The K323 sports both Bluetooth and a VGA camera, allowing it to sync wirelessly with a host PC and to take still photos. Built-in software allows for quickly editing photo color and adding frames. Battery life is rated at a sizeable 3.5 hours of active talk time and 7.5 hours of standby, according to Kyocera. Importantly, pricing is low as the phone is now shipping for $30 alongside any Verizon contract.
