Review: Kyocera Zio

Is It Your Type? Body The Three S's Touch

Kyocera (Sanyo) bangs out its first Android handset in the Zio. The Zio, which runs Android 1.6, is one of the only smartphones available from Cricket Wireless.

For the pre-paid, no-contract crowd, smartphones are few and far between. That's what makes the Sanyo Zio so appealing. It's an Android smartphone available from regional player Cricket. It runs Google's Android 1.6, however — an OS that's over a year old now. But beggars can't be choosers, right?

I'm sorry--

--but what is it with manufacturers releasing Android 1.6? It's a slap in the face to consumers.

That seems to be the nature of Android at the moment. Fragmentation issues. Hopefully 3.0 will resolve...
