Kyocera X-tc and JAX

Virgin Mobile has without fanfare added a pair of Kyocera phones to its roster. Of the two, the X-tc is the most advanced and has a lateral, slide-out QWERTY keyboard for heavy-duty IM and SMS messaging. It also brings features that are still less common on Virgin phones, like a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth with stereo audio, dedicated music controls and microSD storage. It should be available today and sell for $99 prepaid.

The JAX in turn is aimed at the very entry level of Virgin's audience and counts its 0.5-inch thickness as its most distinctive feature; it supports just a color screen, games, SMS and polyphonic ringtones in its feature set. It doesn't yet have a release window and hasn't been given a price, though it should cost well below the X-tc.
