San Diego & Warren, NJ -- Kyocera Wireless Corp. and wireless upstart Virgin Mobile USA, LLC today debuted a new handset called the Kyocera K9. The K9 incorporates many features such as Superphonic (or real-music) ringtones, Comedy Central content, the Rescue Ring, and exclusive content from *MTV -- not to mention a built-in flashlight.
The K9 is based on Kyocera's K400 series of phones, its best-selling line of wireless handsets. Featuring real-music ringtones, users can download and assign ringtones directly from Virgin Mobile handsets or online at www.virginmobileusa.com and MTV.com that are rich and deep, sounding more like the actual music than today's polyphonic ringers. Additionally, the K9 includes features such as voice-activated dialing, calendars, alarm clock and a built-in contact directory as well as gaming capabilities and predictive text-input for rapid text entry.
"Virgin Mobile's strong appeal with its Pay As You Go services and Kyocera's delivery of cool, relevant and affordable phones continues to hit a sweet spot for the youth market," said Don McGuire, vice president of Global Marketing and North American Sales at Kyocera Wireless Corp.
The K9 will be sold through Virgin Mobile retailer partners and online. In addition to the Kyocera K9, Virgin Mobile also sells the Kyocera K7 Rave and Kyocera Slider V5 *MTV Edition handsets. Virgin Mobile was the first carrier to offer the Slider in North America.
