Kenwood advertised their new TM-V71A dual-band mobile in the May 2007 issue of QST. This rig has a detachable head and can operate as a cross-band repeater. The radio also has ten Echolink memories and other Echolink features. Another model, identified as the TM-D710A was recently spotted in the FCC certification website.

The advanced Kenwood TM-V71A dual bander provides sophisticated, high-powered performance on 2 meters and 440 MHz. Power levels are 5/10/50 watts on both bands. The large radio display clearly conveys the status of the radio and can be set to green or amber.
I have seen people having success with having set up their D710 as a cross band repeater for DSTAR. But unfortunately I have only had partial luck so far. My 2 DSTAR radios are Kenwood D74 and Icom 7100. My V71A will pass DSTAR transmissions going from VHF to UHF but not the other way around. From UHF to VHF its just static.
