Chicago -- U.S. Cellular (USM) and Kyocera Communications Inc. have announced that the waterproof, shock-proof Kyocera Hydro XTRM is available online today and will be in stores on May 24 for $29.99 after instant rebate. The 4G LTE Hydro XTRM has Military Standard 810G certification for shock and drops and carries IP57 certification for protection against dust and immersion in up to 3.28 feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

This durable smartphone is the latest device to join U.S. Cellular's 4G LTE line-up and is ready to handle whatever life throws at it. Businesses and consumers who purchase this device from U.S. Cellular also receive a valuable rewards program that recognizes customer loyalty.

"Whether you are on a family vacation near a water park or campground or your job takes you outdoors in more extreme conditions, the Hydro XTRM keeps you connected to the people and information you need," said Edward Perez, vice president of sales and marketing operations for U.S. Cellular. "At U.S. Cellular, we want to provide a better wireless experience, and our customers can rely on this phone to keep working through accidental drops, unexpected rain or harsh environments."

The Kyocera Hydro XTRM has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, is powered by Androidâ„¢ 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and has a 4-inch impact-resistant touchscreen with reinforced housing for extra durability. It is tough enough to withstand the elements and powerful enough to download apps and videos seamlessly. Kyocera's innovative and award-winning Smart Sonic Receiver technology turns sounds in to vibrations that go directly to the eardrum, so you can hear clearly even in noisy environments such as sporting events with friends and family or in a bustling office with multiple people. And with front- and rear-facing cameras, it is ideal for snapping quality photos or video-chatting with friends and co-workers.

"Hydro XTRM is the next-generation device in the Hydro family of products for people who live life to the fullest and want a phone that can keep up," said Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of global sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications Inc. "With its attractive styling and excellent performance, you may quickly forget that it's built to survive the daily grind of life's spills, falls and unexpected downpours. But you'll be thrilled when life happens and you're relying on the Hydro XTRM to get you through it all."
