Kyocera offers new Android-powered Zio M6000 smartphone

Kyocera has pulled the wraps off a new Android device called the Zio M6000. It has been a long while since I saw any new devices from Kyocera and the company claims that the new M6000 adds a human touch to the smartphone market.

The Zio device runs on the CDMA2000 1x EVDO rev A network and sports WiFi. The screen of the handset is 3.5-inches and is touch capable. A track ball for navigation also complements the touchscreen. Other features include a 3.2MP camera that can record video at 30fps and a media player.

A full HTML browser is integrated along with Google Maps and widgets for Facebook, Twitter, and more. Internal memory for the M6000 is 256MB and an additional 32GB is supported via a microSD card slot. The handset measures 116 x 58.6 x 12.2mm and claims up to six hours of talk time and 18 days on standby. Pricing and availability are unknown at this time.
