Kyocera Wireless Corp. announced Verizon Wireless is offering Kyocera's KX414 phone, which features optional user-changeable "masks" around the phone's enhanced-color display and BREW technology for access to downloadable content.

The Kyocera KX414's changeable masks allow consumers to alter the appearance of their phones. Featuring high-speed CDMA2000 1X and 1.5 megabytes of memory, the KX414 allows users to take advantage of wireless data capabilities for text messaging with animation, e-mail, downloadable screensavers, and polyphonic ring tones.

"We tested our Phantom series against other phones at its price point and KX414 was consistently the hands-down winner with consumers," said Don McGuire, vice president of Global Marketing at Kyocera Wireless Corp.

Kyocera's KX414 also includes standard features such as voice-activated dialing, games, vibrate alert, and predictive text-input for sending messages. The KX414 also supports a variety of optional accessories such as a sport clip and hands-free car kit.

Kyocera Wireless Corp. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Kyocera International Inc., which acquired QUALCOMM Incorporated's CDMA consumer wireless phone business in February 2000.
