Sprint Adds Rugged Kyocera DuraXT to Direct Connect Offerings
For users of Sprint’s Direct Connect push-to-talk service, there’s a new cellphone reporting for duty today.
The Kyocera DuraXT is available now for $69.99 with a two-year contract and after a $50 mail-in rebate. Like many of the models in the Direct Connect line, it features a rugged design that’s built for use by mobile workers in the field, whether it be at a construction site or on a delivery route.
The flip phone is encased in rubberized material that’s water-resistant in up to three feet of water; it can also withstand exposure to dust, shock and extreme temperatures. So if you’re rough on your handsets, the DuraXT can take it.
Of course, it also offers access to Sprint’s Direct Connect service, so you can have instant access to individuals or a group of contacts with the press of a button.
There aren’t a lot of other bells and whistles to the Kyocera DuraXT, but you do get a 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth and expandable memory.
