This Kyocera Strobe phone has all the moves. With a candybar design, it opens lengthwise and has an external keypad and color screen as well as a second, larger display next to another keyboard on the inside. Perfect for the younger, text-driven crowd, it only has a 0.3-megapixel camera with flash and a dedicated camera button. Also expect a WAP 2.0 microbrowser, support for third-party applications via either Java or BREW, polyphonic ring tones and the ability to record voice memos. No price yet, but should be out second half of this year.
