Budget friendly Kyocera Milano and Brio are launched by Sprint in time for back-to-school
First and foremost, the Kyocera Milano’s biggest attraction is its landscape sliding style physical keyboard – making it the ideal device for parents looking to get their kids into an inexpensive smartphone. Some of its features include a 3” QVGA display, 512MB of onboard memory, 3.2-megapixel camera, 2GB microSD card, Wi-Fi hotspot capable, and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR.
Alternatively, the Kyocera Brio is a quick messaging device that sports a portrait style keyboard with contoured keys that should appease those heavily into text messaging. In addition, it features a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, microSD card slot, and some basic messaging focused functionality.
Sure they’re placed on the lower end of the spectrum, but that’s not going to stop some parents from liking their affordable costs.

So this is the phone that's replacing the Samsung Intercept.? Ew. My Intercept may give me headaches with it's slow performance, freezing, shutdowns, and other problems, but at least it looks prettier.

Choupino....the OS is Android 2.3 stock on the Milano.The Brio is just a messenging phone and is not a smartphone. And Jyakotu, who ever said this phone was replacing the horrendous Samsung Intercept?? From your discription of your Intercept.....sounds like you need a phone that works, regardless of how "pretty" (??) it looks!! One of my best phones ever (sorry parkwaydr), was a Kyocera (non-smartphone) on the Verizon system. If T-Mobile ever "rolls" over to AT&T (I'm not an AT&T person!!), I will be "rolling" over to Sprint, and seriously looking at their smartphones, including the Kyocera Milano.
