Kyocera’s Big Day: Releases Source Code For Kyocera Zio

If you were fortunate enough to pick up the Kyocera Zio, one of the premiere phones for Sprint ID packs, than today is your lucky day. The source code for the Kyocera Zio was released today.

If you’re not familiar with the Zio it came out on both Cricket and Sprint. For Cricket wireless it was the first prepaid Android device from Kyocera and on Sprint it was one of the three phones released for the Sprint ID Packs joining the LG Optimus S and the Samsung Transform.

The Kyocera Zio is a midrange phone with a compact form factor and a track ball.  In other big Kyocera news today, despite the humongous earthquake in Japan Kyocera and Sprint reached their Spring 2011 goal of releasing the Kyocera Echo, dual screen device.

Sprint Teams Up With MTV For One Rocking Sprint ID


Sprint has teamed up with Viacom’s MTV to create one heck of a reason to consider getting a Kyocera Zio, Samsung Transform or LG Optimus S. Its the new MTV SprintID.

Sprint’s CEO, Dan Hesse, unveiled the new Sprint ID concept in October at the CTIA Enterprise & Applications Event.¬† The Sprint ID is a convergence of apps, widgets, and wallpapers put together as a theme. Sprint has several exciting content partners working with them on SprintID. Disney, ESPN, HSN and Mtv are just some of those partners.

The new Mtv SprintID offers one click access to applications, widgets, wallpapers and ringtones selected by MTV for the music loving generation.

The MTV ID includes:
Mtv Meter
Mtv News App
Mtv headlines widget
Mtv photos
Mtv twitter

Of course users of Android devices with SprintID still have full access to the full Android Market so they can tweak their Mtv SprintID, but that list of apps is pretty solid. In fact the only thing thats not included that we would suggest is Shazam but they’ve included Soundhound instead.
