Waterproof Kyocera Hydro for Boost Mobile to Surface August 3

It’s summer, and that means trips to the beach or pool. But water and cellphones don’t mix — unless you have a waterproof phone like the upcoming Kyocera Hydro for Boost Mobile.

Available Aug. 3 for $129.99 without contract, the Hydro is splashproof and can be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

The 3G-enabled smartphone will ship running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera on its back.

Monthly plans for Android smartphones cost $55 and include unlimited voice, text and Web. However, for every six on-time payments you make, Boost Mobile will reduce the price of your plan by $5, so eventually you could pay as little as $40 per month for unlimited everything.
