Following up the success it had with the Strobe/Switch_Back handset, Kyocera has today announced the new M1000 QWERTY phone from CTIA Wireless. The M1000 sports the same fold open layout as the Strobe, but has a much more stylish design.
The Kyocera M1000 sports a 1.3 megapixel camera for photos and video recording, both Java and BREW for mobile applications, and Bluetooth v1.2. The M1000's strength is in messaging though, supporting IM and email over a high-speed EV-DO connection. The device carries two 262k color TFT LCD displays, the external a 1.5" 128x128 pixel unit and the internal a 1.8" 160x120 pixel resolution, all in a device that weighs in at just 100g (3.5oz).
No carrier support or pricing information has been announced for the Kyocera M1000 thus far.
