Entry-level, a hard keyboard, and an interesting form factor
I've got to hand it to any carrier (and manufacturer) for continuing to make and sell entry-level Android phones. Without them, a whole swath of people would miss out on the coolest mobile OS around and might not get the green fever everyone around here seems to have.
What we have in the Kyocera Milano is a tasty cookie just that: a pretty decent, entry-level Android for the (probably) first-time smartphone owner. If you're a power user and rooter extraordinaire, keep walking. If, however, you're looking to get your first shiny, new smartphone (or know someone who is), dive on deeper with me and we'll sort this whole thing out.
It's small, brisk for it's size, and has a hard keyboard (great for messaging). It's also about as stock as you can get without going Nexus.
The small screen isn't as sharp as it should be and it's thicker than most über-phones out on the market today.
Sprint and Kyocera have definitely developed a phone for a particular audience, and for that audience, it definitely fits. For everyone else, keep moving right along.
