Kyocera Event Virgin Mobile official

Kyocera's bringing an Event to Virgin Mobile, and everyone's invited! *ba-dum-psh* Now that that's out of the way, I can tell you that Virgin Mobile today announced the Kyocera Event, an Android 4.0-powered smartphone that's available for purchase today from the Virgin Mobile website for $79.99. The Event will also be offered with a red paint job that'll be sold exclusively at RadioShack stores starting on March 3. As far as specs go, here's what $79.99 will get buyers:

  • 3.5-inch 480x320 display
  • 1GHz Qualcomm MSM8655 Snapdragon processor
  • 3.2-megapixel rear camera
  • 4GB built-in storage, microSD slot that supports cards up to 32GB in size
  • 512MB RAM
  • 1,500mAh battery
  • Eco Mode software to conserve battery power
  • MagniFont, which is an "extra-extra-large font size" to help users to better see what they're doing
  • Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

The Kyocera Event's $79.99 price tag puts it on the lower-end of Virgin Mobile's lineup when it comes to device cost, so the Event could be a good way for Virgin Mobile customers to get a new Android handset on the cheap. Virgin Mobile's full announcement of the Event can be found below, along with a link to the Event's product page with that all-important "Add to Cart" button.
