Virgin Mobile launches Kyocera Kona for payLo

Virgin Mobile has released a new handset for the payLo brand that will prove affordable for almost all users. The Kyocera Kona, which Cricket launched back in April, is a basic flip phone with two color displays and, well, not much more. But at $19.99 it makes for a good temporary phone, or something you can use in a pinch. Virgin does offer payLo service from $20 per month, so you’re looking at laying out $260 for a year’s worth of service. Not bad, considering that you can’t get a decent smartphone, never mind service, for that much on prepaid. You can get the Kyocera Kona at Virgin Mobile’s website. ]]>

    On Virgin’s wensite, it shows that the s2100 comes with a 2gb memory card. With that I assume that the s2100 has a microSD slot. If so, it would seem that the new s2150/2151 (Kona) is a to some extent a gutted replacement as it is advertised as having at least one less feature comperd to its predecessor.
    Why is that?
