Seems Kyocera has joined the "Sidekick killer" trend that's popping up with cellphone manufacturers and carriers. The KX21 or "Switchback" is a QWERTY keyboard phone for Virgin Mobile. The phone has 1x RTT data, as well as a built-in camera and is aimed toward text messaging. Don't expect anything too great though. No Bluetooth is included with the KX21, making it the ideal cheap-ass phone for pre-paid. It also appears to have a rugged design for when teens drop the phone while roaming the mall. Expect a release date very soon from Virgin Mobile.
