FCC filing reveals the Kyocera Hydro - looks to be Sprint bound
Looking over the FCC filing, the Kyocera Hydro is attached with the familiar C5170 model number, but it seems that tests show that it’s packing a CDMA 1900MHz radio, which alludes to the distinct possibility that it’ll be coming to Sprint’s lineup. Of course, it shouldn’t be that much of a surprise considering that they offer plenty of Kyocera-made devices.
Also, the FCC filing confirms that it’ll be packing 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. However, the main attraction about the handset is the fact that it’s waterproof up to a depth of three feet for up to 30 minutes. As for the rest, its specs sheet make it a fitting entry-level model with its 3.5” HVGA display, 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and 512MB of RAM,

Nothing like a good rugged smartphone for those who are in the industries that need them most. This phone should be pretty popular with mechanics, construction workers and etc,. I would love to test out that water proof claim though.

Actually, this sounds like it is intended for the kids that keep dropping their phones in toilets.
