Sounds pretty interesting. I would love to try it.
Also it's nice to see Kyocera making higher end phones.
This is definitely a lil behind in some ways, but compared to distance between highend and Kyocera now and a few years ago..They climbed up a lot. Dual core. S2. HD. 8MP. Android 4.0.

No doubt Apple will put it on the iphone and claim they came up with it first...and all the iphone user will try to convince the world that this technology was stolen from them

CAMERA= i call it SUPER GAMMA OPTIC LENS TECHNOLOGY and suddenly i invented a new camera..LOL!
But These guys strategy is SIMPLE,
"SPEAKER= They call it ""Smart Sonic Receiver tissue-conducting technology"" and INSISTED that theres no speaker in it.
