Verizon Wireless has made the Kyocera KX2 available in their online store. The KX2 has a novel form factor in that top half rotates around to be at the top, rather than sliding like the Kyocera SE47 "Slider" phone. The KX2 has a camera resolution of 1.2 megapixels (1280x960) and a screen resolution of 132x176 with an 18-bit display. The format allows for the camera to be used in standard landscape mode with the full screen as a landscape viewfinder. In fact, it's held like a normal camera in this mode. It does not have Bluetooth or a memory card slot like the Motorola V710, but it's camera quality is arguably better.
The handset, when closed, is a decent size. However, when opened it's rather long and large feeling. The orientation of the mouth piece is away from the user rather than towards the user like a normal flip phone.
The handset has supports QUALCOMM's BREW 2.1 API. More information can be found at Phone Scoop and QUALCOMM's extranet (you'll need extranet access from QUALCOMM). Storage comes in at around 14 megabytes and RAM comes in at around 6 megabytes, putting it mid-range for the new handsets.
Other carriers may offer this handset in the future.
