Kyocera Honored As “Device Vendor Of The Year” By RadioShack

Kyocera Communications Inc., a San Diego-based provider of wireless phones in the Americas and a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyocera International Inc., announced today that it has been named “Device Vendor of the Year” by RadioShack®. The award, given at this month’s RadioShack Summit in Fort Worth, Tex., recognizes not only the strength of Kyocera’s mobile-phone portfolio, but also its dedicated, end-to-end support of RadioShack’s diverse pre- and post-paid wireless service offerings.

RadioShack, one of the nation’s leading electronics retailers for 90 years, gives “Vendor of the Year” awards in four categories each year. With mobile devices today accounting for more than 50 percent of the company’s sales, the “Device” category is highly competitive among the world’s leading cell phone manufacturers. RadioShack is one of the nation’s top retailers of mobile devices. At the RadioShack Summit, Kyocera received the award from RadioShack’s chief executive officer Dorvin Lively and vice president of mobility Allen McClard at a formal dinner attended by more than 3,500 people.

RadioShack currently sells 15 Kyocera mobile phones, highlighted by the recently introduced Kyocera Hydro and Kyocera Rise. Sold with pre-paid, flat-rate service from Boost Mobile, the Kyocera Hydro is an Android™ 4.0 smartphone with the added benefit of IPx5- and IPx7-level waterproofing. The Kyocera Rise, offered with pre-paid service from Virgin Mobile or post-paid service from Sprint, is an affordable Android 4.0 smartphone with a comfortable slide-out QWERTY keypad. Other prominent devices at RadioShack from Kyocera include the Innuendo messaging phone and the Dura Series of ruggedized feature phones supporting the Sprint Direct Connect push-to-talk service.

“In carrying so many Kyocera devices, RadioShack has placed great faith in us and we are honored that they have recognized our efforts with this prestigious award,” said Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications Inc. "This year Kyocera sharpened its focus on providing devices that are not only affordable and intuitive, but also differentiated with features like waterproofing, QWERTY keypads and ruggedization that meet the real needs of real consumers.”
