Kyocera DuraMax is scheduled to land on Sprint's lineup on October 2nd for $99.99
In their attempt to move away from iDEN technology, we’ve already heard that Sprint is bringing to market the Sprint Direct Connect push-to-talk CDMA phones in the Kyocera DuraCore and DuraMax. However, we’ve been in the dark in terms of pricing and availability – well, that’s up until now.

So far, it looks like the more rugged of the two, the Kyocera DuraMax, is set to launch with Sprint starting on October 2nd for the 2-year contract price of $99.99 after a $50 mail-in-rebate – according to a leaked flyer ad for the phone. Sure it might come off as being pricey, especially for a flip phone, but it specifically offers protection against dust, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, blowing rain, low pressure, solar radiation, salt fog, and humidity. Not only that, but it’s even waterproof in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.

Needless to say, it’s lovely to know finally about the DuraMax’s release date, but we’re still curious to know when its sibling, the Kyocera DuraCore, will make its eventual arrival.
