Cox Prepping Kyocera Android Phone With TV/DVR Capabilities?


KOXThe guys at AndroidAndMe got a hot anonymous tip on a new entrant into not only the Android market (not the one for apps) but to 4G mobile phones as well. That entrant is Cox – the nation’s 3rd largest cable company. Here is what their tipster said:

“Worked on a quick short-term sub-sub-sub contract where I wrote an app for Android, to be run at a trade show. The hardware I installed on was a Kyocera, but even more interesting was the Cox logo on it. The logos were taped over but quite legible from the bumps nonetheless. There were also some Cox apps included; I think one was either for watching TV or controlling DVR? Not entirely sure. The screen was WVGA800, very nice and sharp, though the hardware wasn’t the fastest. Unfortunately I didn’t have a chance to photograph or examine it too closely since I only had about an hour to load and debug.”

The company piggybacks on Sprint’s network and recently invested $500 million in AWS spectrum for LTE. Looks like everyone wants in on Android these days – but how will they fare? Hopefully the “trade show” that the device was being prepped for is CTIA which is in just a couple weeks.
