Kyocera Milano is a $50 mid-range Gingerbread handset going to Sprint on September 9?
The Kyocera Echo might not have panned out to become one of the heavy hitters in the big leagues for Sprint, but it’s not stopping the manufacturer from pushing forward with newer devices. Rather than coming up with something entirely different in form factor again, Kyocera is taking it easy and sticking with a traditional approach with their next offering for Sprint.

Deemed as a mid-range Gingerbread flavored smartphone, the Kyocera Milano might conjure up some images about being a fashionably conscious device, but it’s you typical middle of the road QWERTY packing device.

Expected to arrive on September 9th for the acceptable 2-year contract price of $49.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate, the Milano features 3” touchscreen, 800MHz processor, 512 MB RAM & ROM, 3.2-megapixel camera, 2GB microSD card, Bluetooth, and 1,340 mAh battery. And yeah, it’s going to be packing a side-sliding physical keyboard for those itching to compose messages at a moment’s notice.

Making it an easier handset to tolerate, it’s nothing more than a 3G enabled smartphone, which means no added monthly cost to your account. So for those not too keen about getting the latest and greatest, the Kyocera Milano might be a suitable solution.

If this is trying to say no $10 premium data fee, sorry, it's for all smartphones.

unless its going to fall under the same rules as the samsung replinish that doesn't require the $10 premium.

Same here...which will make this piece of junk a complete waste of time

The Replenish will probably remain the only one that waives the $10 Premium Data fee, although I'm pretty sure its because of the "Green" friendliness of the phone. If this one has some of those characteristics, it may do the same
