Kyocera Rise making headlines again, headed straight to Sprint and Virgin Mobile


The Kyocera Rise has been hiding under the blankets since its announcement at CTIA 2012. But if you have been waiting for a device with a good physical keyboard, its triumphant return to the internet may make you happier than ever. Especially if you are a Sprint or Virgin Mobile customer, which is where this device seems to be headed.

EVLeaks has been making some good rounds this week, bringing us juicy details about the Samsung Jasper, LG Cayenne and LG Motion 4G. The source is now blessing us with a bit of rumors related to the Kyocera Rise. They have gotten a hold of a device image. This would be no huge news, as we have already seen official pictures, but this one comes with a bit of a giveaway.

The leaked image displays the SprintZone app right in the home screen. EVLeaks states that it will be coming to Virgin Mobile as well, so Sprint customers won’t be feeling lonely.

This should be a great option for physical keyboard lovers, as well as an affordable one. Check out our hands-on video to see if this device is the one for you.
