Kyocera Brigadier said to be coming to Verizon
Japanese electronics and ceramics manufacturer Kyocera continues to fill that niche of ruggedized or water resistant devices for the North American market, with a device called “Brigadier” on the way to Verizon according to @evleaks.

Most of the company’s offerings have been limited to pre-paid carriers and select devices on Verizon and Sprint. If nothing notable comes to mind recently, do not feel bad as the products are targeted at mid-to-lower range specifications.

We do not have any details about the Kyocera Brigadier. We presume it is an Android powered smartphone that is waterproof and dustproof, but it could also be a new ruggedized feature phone like the Kyocera DuraPro.  Spec-wise, it will probably not be cutting edge.

We are not expecting Kyocera to begin offering anything like the higher-end devices it builds solely for Japan. Instead, the Brigadier may be a follow-on to the Hydro Elite, or it may be added to Verizon’s pre-paid line of devices on the carrier’s recently released ALLSET plans.

Kyocera phones aren't huge on specs, but they're usually a pretty good value.

'Brigadier' is a cool name. They should make a whole line-up named after military ranks.
