Sprint branded Kyocera Zio dummy units make their way to RadioShack
Sprint is probably positioned to soon start selling the Kyocera Zio after dummy units for the handset with Sprint's branding began to make their appearance throughout RadioShack stores nationwide. This follows after Cricket Wireless began to offer the Android powered device a little more than a month ago with a no-contract price of $249.99.

Since Sprint will be offering a discount on the handset with a 2-year contract, it'll be interesting to see what price point we'll end up seeing it flaunt. Although the Kyocera Zio for Cricket packs Android 1.6, this one for Sprint is rumored to hold Android 2.1 when it begins to hit store shelves. Some of the features of the Zio include a 3.5” WVGA touchscreen, a 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor, 3.2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi.

VERY interesting. I saw this when it launched and hoped that it would come to Virgin or Boost. I never thought it would come out under Sprint. Cool I think it'll get a lot of customers who don't want to cough up any money for a new handset.

I can assure you Doakie, that there will be a cost for the Kyocera Zio with a 2 year contract for new customer as well as existing ones either upgrading from their present device or adding an additional line of service with Sprint. My speculation for the Kyocera Zio's price will be around the $100-200 mark after all applicable discounts.
