Kyocera Echo (Echo...Echo...Echo) to launch April 17th on Sprint for $199
The Echo's dual 3.5 inch screens come together to form one 4.7 inch display. One of the interesting things about the device is that two separate apps can be handled by each screen or select apps can be downloaded that would call for the two screens to work together. For example, using a mapping program with the dual screens could allow the user to track his progress on one screen while displaying real time weather or traffic on the other screen. Or a movie could be streamed to one screen while the other shows the exact script with dialogue or information about the stars in the picture.
Pre-orders for the Kyocera Echo will be taken by Sprint starting March 26th. You can reserve your unit by clicking on this link.

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to when it drops to $49.99? My guess is within 3 months.

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to why Droid_X_Doug has "Droid X" in his username? My guess is because he's a Verizon fanboy.

I like the concept of this phone. If only it was dual core, 4G, gingerbread, and made by htc...

Not a bad concept. It's a bit before it's time though. It's too thick and the bezel is annoying!
It's worth another shot once bendable screens become available and they can make it a lot thinner!

Kyocera? $200? I havent even heard of a kyocera since 05 when i had VM. Quite sad how some companies don't think logically with pricing. They might have had a chance with $99.
