Kyocera Communications, Inc. Announces Launch of Kyocera Communications, Inc. and DuraXE

Kyocera Communications, Inc. is rolling out two new rugged Kyocera devices to complement AT&T’s1 existing rugged portfolio. The new DuraForce XD, a ruggedized2 4G LTE Android™ smartphone with a large 5.7-inch high-definition display, and the new DuraXE feature phone, join Kyocera’s DuraForce smartphone to offer AT&T customers an unprecedented range of rugged devices designed to withstand harsh conditions. The DuraForce XD and its large display are ideal for viewing documents, forms, schedules and other critical information on the job. The DuraXE is a Push-To-Talk device designed for active people who wish to stay connected in tough work environments. Both devices feature dedicated side buttons supporting AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk. Both devices are available starting January 8. The Kyocera DuraForce XD is as low as $14.97/month with $0 down for well-qualified with AT&T Next244 when they activate it on qualified service. It also is available for $49.99 with a two-year wireless service agreement (CRU Only5) and the purchase of AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk6. The DuraXE is available for $13.50 per month for 20 months on an AT&T Installment plan7, $49.99 with two-year wireless service agreement (CRU Only) and the purchase of AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk. DuraForce XD is designed to withstand dust, drop, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure/high altitude, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity and water immersion. Its durable design lets users confidently operate the device without a protective case, and provides not only survivability but also usability in harsh environments. DuraForce XD’s large touchscreen display can even be operated when wet or with gloved hands. DuraXE features a ruggedized design that’s become synonymous with Kyocera phones. It boasts Military Standard 810G protection for dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog and humidity, along with IP68 certification as dustproof and waterproof for up to 30 minutes in up to six feet of water. Its large, tactile keypad is designed for ease of use with gloved hands. Its convenient top keys provide quick access to activate the speaker phone or end calls. In addition to its internal color display, a high-contrast external display makes it easy to read while outside on the job. The DuraXE features dual-mic noise cancellation and powerful dual front speakers to help ensure that users can hear calls clearly—even in noisy environments. The DuraXE is work-ready, providing a high degree of toughness without sacrificing power or features.

Kyocera Launches Ultra-Rugged DuraForce 4G LTE Android Smartphone at Telus

Kyocera Communications, Inc. announced its DuraForce ultra-rugged, waterproof 4G LTE Android™ smartphone is now available at TELUS. The Military Standard 810G- and IP68-certified DuraForce enables workers and active consumers to do more with their smartphones-on the most demanding jobsite or skiing down the steep slopes of one of Canada's many winter resorts. The device will be available at TELUS for $50 with select 2-year TELUS business and consumer rate plans or $530 outright. DuraForce is IP68-certified, meaning it is dustproof, waterproof and can be submerged in up to 1.8 metres of water for up to 30 minutes. With a reinforced housing and Military Standard 810G protection against dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, blowing rain, low pressure/high altitudes, solar radiation, salt fog, humidity and water immersion, DuraForce can go more places and withstand extreme environments and accidents. DuraForce is certified for use in hazardous work environments where concentrations of flammable gases, vapors, or mists are not normally present in an explosive concentration but may materialize, making it an ideal smartphone for industries such as Oil Exploration and Production, Utilities, Chemical Production, Airport Refueling, Pharmaceutical/Paint Industries and Natural Gas Pipeline/Production Centers. DuraForce features the Android™ KitKat 4.4.2 operating system and a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 with 1.4GHz Quad-core CPU. The phone's 16GB of ROM can be augmented via an external microSD™ card slot that supports cards up to 32GB. It has a high-capacity 3100mAh Lithium Ion battery that is well suited to long days on the job or on the go, along with a 4.5" 720p HD impact-resistant touchscreen that can be used while wearing gloves1, with wet hands or when the screen is wet. The touchscreen immediately recognizes the input method, whether by glove or bare hand, and automatically adjusts the sensitivity level.
