For some people, keys ARE the key feature and Kyocera recognizes that with Kyocera Rise, a slider "touchscreen + QWERTY" smartphone that offers the best of both worlds. For diehard QWERTY users and feature-phone users looking to move up to a smartphone, Rise features an easy-to-use slide-out keypad and a high-resolution touchscreen in an Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) device. With a 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen, 3.2 megapixel camera, Eco Mode power management software, and Swype for faster, easier touchscreen typing, Rise helps making the jump to Android even easier. A 2012 Yankee Group revealed that 69 percent of consumers called a QWERTY keypad a "must have" or "nice to have" feature on their devices. With Kyocera Rise, now you don't have to settle – you can have it AND a touchscreen on one beautiful Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone.
