Now BusinessWeek has shed light on one phone we can expect during Sprint's industry first event - and, no, it doesn't sound like a heavyweight with monstrous specs. According to a person familiar with the matter, this phone is none other than (hold your breath)... the Kyocera Echo (work name Sanyo Orange).
Info on this handset is not available, and yet, it's virtually certain this is not to be the big announcement Sprint is to make (or at least we hope so).
Mind that the last time we told you about the Kyocera Echo, it was leaked together with the HTC Arrive - a WP7 handset destined for Sprint. Of course, this proves absolutely nothing, and yet, the Arrive is a far more fitting candidate for the "industry first" tag, because, if announced there, it would be the first CDMA Windows Phone 7 device.
However, the most likely candidate is none other than the LG Optimus 3D - the first dual-core handset using glasses-free 3D technology.
The Sprint event is mere hours away (you have to check our live coverage here), and we will be on the spot to tell you all you need to know, so stay tuned to PhoneArena for everything interesting on the subject.
