Boost Refreshes Entry Level With Kyocera Coast
Boost Mobile today launched the Kyocera Coast, a basic clamshell-style phone with a 2-megapixel camera and external display. The phone sports Bluetooth and voice dialing, but without LTE, video capture, or even a memory card slot, "affordable" is its most important feature.

Compared to the Luno, the Coast has a better camera and larger displays.
