Dual-Screen Kyocera Echo on sale today at Sprint

The Kyocera Echo does have some meat on its bones-a 1GHz Snapdragon chip is on board, a 5MP camera on back, and Android 2.2 under the hood. The display is where the action is, however. Two 3.5 inch screens can be used in various combinations including as a single 4.7 inch display. Both screens have a 480 x 800 resolution.
Sprint is offering the Echo for $199 after a $100 rebate and a signed 2-year pact. Will the phone get a better reception from Sprint customers now that it has been launched?
Definitely don't think this will be a smartphone revolution...but it does have some function. It's kind of cool to have the function of doing more than one thing and having it displayed on two separate screens. Watching a movie and wanting to look up information about it without leaving the movie itself. Same could be done with email... But this phone is going to need a ton of Android augmentation in the future since it looks to be completely customized by Kyocera. Hopefully, they stay on board with support...

Well since it is looking like the Bionic has crashed and burned, I wnder when Sprint will be selling the EVO 3D? That is what I am interested in from Sprint.

If it was dual 800x480 screens, it would be a LOT more attractive... as is, the two screens combined are barely more than that.

Seems like most of us are interested in the echo... we just do not want one. Kinda funny.
