Updated: added reference to ruggedization.
Boost Mobile today announced the pending availability of the Kyocera Hydro Icon. The device is the latest in Kyocera's line of water-resistant Android smartphones, but goes one step further by meeting mil-spec 801G for protection against drops and vibration. Kyocera calls devices such as the Icon "everyday durable." It features a 4.5-inch qHD screen, 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 8-megapixel main camera, 2-megapixel user-facing camera, and 8GB of built-in storage with support for microSD cards up to 32GB. The device houses a 2,000mAh battery paired with Kyocera's Eco-Mode and MaxiMZR power management tools, and it supports wireless charging. Other features include Kyocera's Smart Sonic Receiver technology and support for LTE 4G. The Kyocera Hydro Icon will cost $150 when it goes on sale in Boost Stores June 17. Boost Mobile does not require contracts.
