The Sanyo ZIO from Kyocera was announced by Cricket Wireless yesterday in a press release where they revealed their new device lineup. The Sanyo Zio was included in Cricket Wireless's leaked lineup on BoyGeniusReport back at the end of March, and at that time, the aim was to launch the handset in July, but it looks like their plans got pushed back to fall.
According to the press release issued, Cricket says that users will have "unlimited HTML web browsing, email and messaging, media sharing, and access to a robust library of applications through the Android market. "
The Sanyo ZIO is reported to come with Android 1.6 and be upgradeable to Android 2.1, sport a 3.5" WVGA display, 3.2MP camera, and have 512MB of ROM for onboard storage. The phone was originally rumored for a price of $199, but once word got around that Cricket would be carrying it, the price changed into the $299 range.
AndroidGuys writes that if you go to "Cricket's website, you can subscribe for more info, and when it's released, you'll know about it first. There's even a short video explaining why the Zio is the right phone for you."
