Wireless review: Kyocera Jet for Amp'd Mobile

As published on CNET.com:
"Mobile multimedia junkies will find plenty of eye and ear candy in the Kyocera Jet, the company's new 3G slider for newcomer carrier Amp'd Mobile. This all-black, EV-DO-enabled handset boasts a slick media player that taps into the Amp'd video and music store, plus a 128MB TransFlash card for storing all your songs and video clips. Unfortunately, the Jet is saddled with an underwhelming VGA camera, a small and annoying keypad, and a tendency to freeze at inopportune moments. While the phone's bargain-basement $100 price tag sweetens the pill--making it one of the cheapest, no-contract 3G phones we've seen--those looking for a powerhouse 3G phone from Amp'd Mobile should wait for the Hollywood, a rebranded version of Motorola's impressive E815 with a 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth, which will be available in the first quarter of 2006."
