Kyocera announces the Candid KX16 cameraphone for CDMA networks
Kyocera Wireless Corp. has announced the Kyocera Candid KX16 CDMA wireless handset. Candid KX16 promises to bring an affordably priced color clamshell cameraphone with external caller ID to the U.S. and International CDMA markets when launched later this year.

The new model features a popular clamshell design and a VGA camera with flash and digital zoom. An external vertical caller ID display allows quick viewing of incoming calls and dedicated side buttons for the camera and volume control offer instant access to key features. A powerful speakerphone, voice-activated dialing, vivid color display and ergonomic design with raised keypad for quick texting round out the key features Kyocera built into this model.

The VGA camera in Kyocera's Candid KX16 features a front-facing camera lens and flash so users can capture images without having to worry about moving the phone around or adjusting fingers away from the lens. The 5-step digital zoom goes from 160x120 resolution to 640x480 resolution and camera features include multi-shot adjustment, auto-focus, self-timer, white balance, color effects adjustment and fun frames to add to shots before sending them.

The CDMA2000 1X-capable Candid KX16 features a WAP 2.0 browser, built-in polyphonic ring tones, screen savers, and caller alerts. It is also compatible with BREW 2.1. Other tools include vibrating alerts and predictive text input. Productivity tools include a contact directory, scheduler, calculator, alarm clock, world clock, stopwatch, tip calculator, countdown timer, and voice memos.

The handset measures 1.89 in x 3.54 in x .98 in (48 mm x 90 mm x 25 mm), weighs 3.9 oz (109 g) and has a talk time of 3.5 hours and standby time of up to 170 hours.
