If you bought into the ruggedized LTE device hype and picked up a Kyocera Torque on Sprint, then good news is afoot: your little tank is getting its taste of Jelly Bean beginning in just three days' time. According to Sprint's update blog, the Torque should begin receiving an update on July 5th that not only brings Android 4.1.2 to the rough-and-tough handset, but also international calling, the ability to "power cycle," email sync fixes, and enhancements to sleep mode.


Overall, this should result in a nice little speed boost for the device, which in turn will likely make you want to freeze it, throw it in a washing machine, and drop it two stories a little bit less. Hopefully.

    Sad that this is getting an update and the One S isn't. Pathetic.
