Kyocera Hydro Vibe: The Waterproof Android Smartphone for Busy Moms

Kyocera Hydro Vibe Sprint Splash

Just in time for Mother’s Day, Sprint is launching the Kyocera Hydro Vibe. Perfect for busy moms, this Android 4.3 Jelly Bean smartphone is waterproof up to one meter for 30 minutes, and it also has an impact resistant 4.5-inch qHD touchscreen. No more worries about sticky fingers, spilled milk or bath time destroying your smartphone!

Other features include an 8-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel front camera, NFC for contactless payments (great when you’re juggling the kids!), and PMA wireless charging so you don’t even have to plug it in at the end of a long day, just lay it on the charging station.

The Kyocera Hydro Vibe launches May 9 on the Sprint Easy Pay plan, $0 down and $9.59 a month for two years. It will also be available for $149 on a no-contract service plan from Virgin Mobile on May 27th.
