Today Michael Oryl had a chance to sit down with Kyocera and check out the company's first Android smartphone, the Zio M6000, up close.

The Zio measures 116mm x 58.6mm x 12.2mm (4.5in x 2.3in x 0.48in) and has a 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen display. It's also equipped with a 3.2 megapixel camera, 256MB of internal memory, Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

Michael believes it's one of the lightest Android devices that he has ever felt at 105g. He noted that it felt a bit hollow, but still felt nice in the hand. He particularly liked the great display, but found that the trackball only worked OK. Most navigation relies on spite, but he appreciated the hardware send/end buttons for quickly starting and finishing phone calls.

The device supports CDMA EV-DO Rev. A networks, which means it's possible that it could make an appearance on Sprint or Verizon Wireless in the United States.
