Kyocera and Virgin Mobile have paired up once again to bring another low-cost pre-paid device. The Event can be had for a low $79 with no contract. When paired with Virgin’s $35 300 minute and unlimited data plan it can be a viable choice for new users looking for a decent device without having to pay a huge retail price. The Event brings a modest set of specs to the table which include a 3.5-inch HVGA (320×480) display, a 1 GHz processor, Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), 512 Mb of RAM (Micro-SD card expandable), and a 3.2-Megapixel camera. There seems to be little presence of an OEM skin which is nice. Although the specs are far from blowing anyone away, it could be one of Virgin’s top sellers based on price.
