Kyocera MARBL at Virgin

Virgin Mobile started its Tuesday by launching the Kyocera MARBL, the Japanese cellphone designer's budget take on the slip flip phone design of Motorola's RAZR. Its design is thin for the price range at 0.8 inches thick and is sold as a no-frills phone: Bluetooth and a camera are dropped for the sake of price, though polyphonic ringtones and web browsing continue on for those who need the extra level of functionality.

The MARBL should be available in retail shops and online now for $30 before topping up on credit for Virgin's prepaid service. Click through for a photo of the phone's metal-style interior.

    Naming scheme...

    is similar to Motorola's fashionably misspelled models. I guess Moto should have patented abbreviated, capitalized cellphone model names.
