Kyocera to launch K822 multimedia phone

Not to be lost in the mix of new Samsung, LG, and Motorola handsets, Kyocera is trying to recapture its part of the pie with the K822 multimedia phone. Its outward appearance won’t win any awards, as it looks like any generic internal-antenna’d clamshell, but this ain’t one of those handsets you’ll get for free with a contract, and rightfully so.

Weighing in at 4 ounces, the K822 is designed for mobile entertainment. It has a built-in music player that will tackle a good variety of audio formats, including MP3, AAC, WMA, and Windows Media DRM. If you want to change it up a bit, there’s also an FM tuner on board to go with your 30MB of internal memory. Of course, you’ll need to make use of the microSD expansion slot. It goes without saying that they’ve shoved a camera in there too, a 1.3 megapixel shooter, as well as Bluetooth connectivity.

Look for the CDMA Kyocera K822 to drop in Q3 of this year at a yet to be announced price.
