T-Mobile and MetroPCS have announced the upcoming availability of the Kyocera Hydro Life, a waterproof and rugged Android smartphone. Arriving at the Un-carrier’s door on August 8, the handset features a 4.5-inch impact-resistant display, a 5-megapixel rear camera, front-facing 2-megapixel shooter, and 2000mAh battery. Other details include protection against drops and shock, water, dust, and other elements of life. This is the sort of smartphone you ease your teen into without fear of it getting trashed.
“Many of us have let the fear of fragile phones constrain our lives while many other solutions are either budget busters, too bulky or lack the best Android smartphone experience. Hydro Life delivers everyday durability with the right design and feature set; while remaining very economical for cost-conscious households.”
Priced $124.99, the Hydro Life will be offered at Walmart locations around the country. MetroPCS will carry the device effective August 29.
