Can you hear an echo? Fujitsu to make dual touchscreen handset
It hasn't been too long ago when we reported that Sprint had introduced the Kyocera Echo, a dual-screen Android phone. And while the reception was decidedly cool, it appears that another manufacturer is giving the dual-screen handset a shot.

In Japan, Fujitsu has released a dual screen handset that runs Symbian. However, the manufacturer has passed out the word at the MWC that they are working on an Android flavored model.

Is a dual-screen handset something that is high up on your wish list? Let us know by dropping a comment in the box below!

While I appreciate companies trying to come up with different form factors. This one just looks flimsy as hell.

Innovative! But the hinge between screens is not good as it looks fragile.

Say what you will about the Echo, but its design and form factor is light years ahead of this one, this one looks like a rejected design from many years ago.

No doubt on the echo looking better then this one. I am not impressed with the "hinge" design on the Echo, but this one doesn't look finished yet, like they ran out of plastic.

If the iPhone 5 were a dual screen phone my money bets that everyone would think it was the best phone design ever. iDual.

So, you are suggesting two phones hinged together? Top notch. Make one t mobile and the other Verizon. Lol
