Kyocera DuraMax and DuaCore handsets from Sprint, explored at CTIA

by Gareth Mankoo

Sprint’s new durable duo of phones comes in from the house of Kyocera. The DuraMax and the DuraCore handsets are both built strongly. Both handsets ride on the Direct Connect platform, use 2-inch QVGA displays, 1-inch external displays, built to survive military tests such as heat, cold, dust, shock, water and other anomalies and have a 2.5mm headphone jack for some reason. The difference between the two is that the DuraMax adds a 3.2-megapixel camera on its being along with microSD expansion of up to 32GB possible.

Phones with rubberized coating do seem strong. The keys of both handsets are large so that you can use them even when your tender palms are gloved. The pricing of only the DuraMax is out as of now. It will cost you $70 with a two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate.
