When the first time I heard the word “Cyclops”, I thought that it is about the X-men movie. Hmm… I’m wrong! Because it is actually Kyocera’s newest handset that will be made available to Virgin Mobile customers in the USA. Featuring a trendy clamshell design, the Cyclops comes in a red-and-white body. Weighing in at 3.5 ounces, it is very lightweight and easy on the eye. Being a clamshell, it features dual displays, including a bright internal color display and some pre-loaded games include Lumines Mobile, New York Nights, and Bikini Beach Party (yummy!), and many more games are available for download. It also comes with a 1.3MP digicam. Price tag is at US$99.99, and it will be available online from Virgin Mobile USA as well as retail outlets.

Kyocera has launched a new music phone called the Kyocera K325. It has slim candy bar design and provides 256 MB of memory capacity without any external card slot. However, how come the music phone doesn’t have any external card slot? This ugly CDMA handset also has dedicated music controls and a VGA digicam. No word on pricing and availability yet. But in my opinion, Kyocera K325 seems to be a low budget music phone since it lacks of external memory card slot.
