Doesn't matter whether it's EVDO or not (even though their web site says it is), it's still a Kyocera which means recycled operating system (ever seen one of their phone icons on a totally different phone? I have!), tiny screen (1.8 inch??) and sorry camera (their phones take horrible pics!).
i agree with most of the stuff you said but i have had 3 Kyoceras,A SoHo a Cyclops and an Oyster and kyoceras are little troopers ,there pretty well built ,they work for a quite some time ,they hold a charge for a decent time (accept for the Oyster) and they don't feel that cheap.
