SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)
Kyocera Communications Inc. (KCI), provider of Kyocera- and SANYO-branded wireless devices, today announced the Torino S2300 and Domino S1310, the latest in its line of stylish handsets targeting consumers who demand today’s most popular features but aren’t willing to break the bank to get them. In the QWERTY messaging device category, which Kyocera helped launch in 2006, is the Torino and its large high-resolution display and full QWERTY keypad. Domino addresses the still-robust segment of the mobile market still focused on value-centric devices primarily designed to make calls and send text messages.
