Kyocera Rise Brings Affordable Android 4.0, Full QWERTY Keypad To Public Mobile

Public Mobile and Kyocera Communications Inc. today announced the immediate availability of the Kyocera Rise, an affordable Android™ smartphone with both a high-resolution touchscreen display and a comfortable slide-out QWERTY keypad. Available for $149, Rise is Public Mobile’s first smartphone to offer the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system and a QWERTY keypad.

Public Mobile’s Android service plans start as low as $35 per month with unlimited talk, text, data and Siren Music. Siren Music is Canada’s first truly unlimited mobile music experience. It allows users to download music without per-song costs or limits on data usage and is available on the go with no computers, no syncing or extra devices required.

“Kyocera Rise brings together the must-have features in an Android smartphone at an incredible price point,” said Mike Stanford, senior vice president - marketing, Public Mobile. “With Public Mobile’s unparalleled combination of unlimited music and unlimited data – and the Kyocera Rise Android device – we’re offering an unbeatable combination for smartphone and music lovers alike.”

Kyocera Rise is the ideal first smartphone for anyone who wants the latest Android features but doesn’t want to give up real keys. A survey conducted earlier this year by industry analyst firm Yankee Group revealed that 69 percent of consumers called a QWERTY keypad a “must have” or “nice to have” feature on their mobile devices.

"Many people are excited about touchscreen devices but they’re skeptical about giving up their keypads – especially anyone who is confident using a QWERTY device or is making the jump from feature phones to smartphones,” said Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of global sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications Inc. “Rise offers the perfect Android solution by keeping those familiar keys available, helping to make a potentially overwhelming experience more comfortable. And with Public Mobile and the Siren Music service, they get a great package at an amazing price.”
