Kyocera Echo gets new challenger; Imerj and Frog reveal dual-screen Android prototype

Kyocera Echo gets new challenger; Imerj and Frog reveal dual-screen Android prototype
The guys at Engadget got their hands on a prototype dual-screen Android device made by Imerj and Frog. The two 4 inch AMOLED screens come together with the help of a simple hinge. No complex design here and maybe that's why it works. Under the hood is a dual-core processor of unknown speed and Gingerbread is powering the show. The device has 32GB of storage that might go up to 128GB in future models, and a 5MP camera that works as both a front and rear facing camera.

According to Engadget, this device is sturdier than the Kyocera Echo and the software seems to have a better looking UI than the Echo as well as offering up some gesture-driven navigation similar to webOS. Check out the video below to see more about this intriguing handset. We have no idea if this dual-screen dandy is heading to the States, but if it does, it could overtake the Kyocera Echo on the double.

I haven't even heard if the Echo has sold well or not. Probably means it hasn't. Not much competition if no one buys em.

What's with the AT&T logo in the corner?

Could care less for the echo. If this company could learn from the mistakes from Kyocera and grant features that the echo lacked, then this phone will be the 1st legit dual screen phone.

Looks like an Echo and an WebOS device crashed into each other and became a new phone. Love the fact that it has a dual-core processor. The ability to display on 3 screens is crazy. Watch a movie on the tv while playing Angry Birds and surfing the web would be awesome but also overwhelming. Wonder how the 2nd screen would be keept from getting messed up. Also wonder how the rear camera is also the front camera. Looks promising if it were to land here in the US.

That ATT network connection is a pretty big hint if you ask me... I'm thinking it's going to be the challenger to the Echo, or from what it looks like, the Echo done correctly!

I'm looking at the constant home, back, and menu keys going back and forth between both screens and flickering every time you do something... How big is the battery for this thing going to be?
