Interesting

I think it's an interesting device. I don't care it's a Kyocera. Sure, they build mostly low-end phones, but so does GM, though every once in a while they put out a new Corvette.

I wouldn't fault Sprint for having an event for this phone, either. I heard some other journalists (okay, just Peter Ha from The Daily) complaining that they didn't want to go because the news was leaked in the WSJ. But this is definitely a phone you'd have to see and hold in your hands to cover properly.

The key is the number of apps that support the feature. They don't need many, just the most important few that people will want to run simultaneously. The SDK is a throw-away. They will not sell enough phones to make the SDK enticing to developers. But as long as they have a good number of key apps on board, with more on the way (for real, not just promised), this could be an interesting niche for Kyocera.
