Kyocera’s water-resistant Hydro Edge dives onto Sprint, Boost Mobile this month (from Engadget)

Kyocera Hydro Edge dives onto Sprint, Boost Mobile this TKTK

An ice bar isn’t how we’d choose to showcase a water-resistant smartphone, but that’s just what Kyocera did at CTIA this year for the Hydro Edge. At the time, Sprint and Boost Mobile had set a loose summer launch for the modest device and now we have a hard date: July 19th and July 23rd, respectively. The IPX 5/7 certified device can be had on a two-year plan at the Now Network for $20 or for $150 outright at Boost, which gets you a 4-inch WVGA display, dual-core 1GHz Snapdragon processor running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 5-megapixel rear shooter. It’s not as sleek and stylish as Sony’s own hydrophobic smartphone, but if you’re on a budget and need to brave the watery element, the Edge’ll have to do.
