Sprint has launched the Kyocera DuraXT, a new rugged mobile phone that supports Sprint's CDMA-based Direct Connect push-to-talk service.

The DuraXT features a clamshell design and 810G military spec compliance for dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, humidity, solar radiation, salt fog, blowing rain, and water immersion. It can withstand full submersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes at a time. There is a 2-inch color inner display with QVGA (240 x 320 pixel) resolution, while an external monochrome display provides notification and missed call information. The DuraXT also has 3.2 megapixel camera and 1360mAh removable battery that is good for up to 8 hours of talk time.

Like Sprint's other Direct Connect devices, the DuraXT supports the full complement of push-to-talk features, including instant one-to-one communication, Group Connect, and Team DC, which allows users to communicate with up to 200 other Direct Connect users at once.

The Kyocera DuraXT is available through all of Sprint's sales channels now for $69.99 with a new two-year agreement.
