Kyocera rocks the party with W41K woofer phone


If you’re looking to get crunk with it, you know that real music is all about the bass. Apparently so does Kyocera, because its W41K handset packs a woofer and anti-shake technology, not to mention a 3.2 megapixel shooter with flash.

The woofers are said to “pack a powerful punch”, although they are not built into the phone itself. Rather, the woofers are a part of the charger, which I guess makes sense, because otherwise the W41K would get its battery drained before you even finish your first song – woofer consume a lot of power.

There’s only 45 megabytes of internal memory, so you’ll need to buy a miniSD card to accompany. The display is a big-ish 2.4-inch, 262k color LCD, with a resolution of 240 x 320. At first glance, it may seem that there is no external display, but look a little deeper and find the organic EL goodness hidden “beneath the mirror polish of the phone.” Other features include GPS and “EZ FM.”

No word on pricing or availability, but Kyocera does plan on making the W41K in black, silver, and red.
