It is still January, but it is never too early to think about the equipment you would take on a hiking expedition in spring, such as a new durable smartphone. And while you are thinking about dust and water resistant smartphone, check out the rugged Kyocera Torque coming to Sprint some time soon. The handset has just hit FCC, so we had opportunity to find out few details about the phone.
The Federal Communications Commission confirms that the Kyocera Torque comes with LTE, NFC, and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n. Thanks to the leaked photos, we also know that the phone features a screen with a resolution of, probably, at least 800 x 480 pixels, and has a rear camera with flash, as well as a front-facing camera.
Most likely, the Kyocera Torque runs stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with some Sprint-specific pre-installed applications. This will likely be the first 4G LTE-capable rugged smartphone to hit the US market.
The Kyocera phones are known to be not too expensive and we hope that the tradition continues and the Torque will also be offered at an affordable price on contract.
