U.S. Cellular To Launch The Rugged Kyocera DuraPro

CHICAGO and SAN DIEGO, Feb. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Cellular (NYSE: USM) and Kyocera Communications Inc. have announced the launch of the Kyocera DuraPro. With Military Standard 810G certification, DuraPro is a perfect fit for consumers and business customers who need a tough feature phone on a high-speed nationwide network. It will be available online February 27 and in stores on February 28 for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.

The Kyocera DuraPro is water, shock, dust, and vibration resistant and is encased in non-slip Dura-Grip material for a strong hold and extra durability. It can be immersed for up to 30 minutes in up to one meter of water and comes with essential apps including, email, a web browser and navigation. Those features, along with a 3.2 megapixel camera, large keypad and powerful speakerphone, make the DuraPro a practical and reliable choice for consumers and business customers who need a device that can withstand harsh elements.

"For those who work and play outdoors in varying weather and climates, the Kyocera DuraPro is an ideal device to help you stay connected to people and information wherever you are," said Edward Perez, vice president of sales and marketing operations for U.S. Cellular. "At U.S. Cellular, we want to provide a better wireless experience, and our customers can rely on this phone to keep working even in extreme conditions."

The Kyocera DuraPro comes with a programmable hot key on the side of the phone that users can easily assign for quick access to the calendar, Bluetooth, alarm or web. U.S. Cellular business customers and consumers who purchase this device also receive benefits no other carrier offers, including a valuable rewards program that recognizes customer loyalty.

"There's still very strong demand for a solid feature phone, and feature phones don't come any more solid than the DuraPro," said Eric Anderson, senior vice president and general manager of global sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications. "The rugged durability of this device and U.S. Cellular's fantastic customer loyalty program combine for a wireless solution that will be with you for the long run."
