Kyocera Echo

Kyocera Echo coming to Sprint April 17th

Sprint has announced that the dual touch screen Kyocera Echo will be launched on the Now Network on April 17th. Pre-orders will being March 26th with the Echo going for $199 with a two year contact. Current Sprint users will also be able to purchase the phone through their eligible upgrade option. To celebrate the first dual screen Android phone, Sprint is hosting a "Duel for Dual" promotion where Android fans will have the chance to compete for a free Echo of their own (I wonder if the 2 year commitment comes with it).

Kyocera Echo FCC Listing [Dual-Screen Magic Machine of Oddness]

If you'll think back to a few weeks ago, we were hanging out in New York when suddenly there was a flash, and a flying man! He told us to go to a Sprint even that would feature him, David Blaine! So we went to this Sprint event and he did a bunch of magic including holding his breath for entirely too long, releasing fish from his mouth, and pouring some liquid inside liquid - why would he do such things, you might ask? He was promoting a magical new device, of course, the Kyocera Echo, a dual-screen Android device that's not a phone yet not quite a tablet. Today that device has passed the FCC, so it'll be out soon, we hope!

Another Dual Screen Android phone pops up … sort of

Murmurs were abound this week as Kyocera announced a dual-touchscreen phone that looked like a Nintendo DSi that makes phone calls. Now there may be another as Fujitsu looked poised to jump into the dual-touchscreen pool. Only, instead of a landscape style screen, they're doing for a portait vibe ... with "options." And it's very interesting.

Kyocera Echo: Are You Serious?

Yesterday we were treated to a rather odd show in New York, one featuring a short magic show by David Blaine followed by a reveal of a human-sized phone that only turned out to be a mockup of a tinier phone. That in itself I found to be an outrage, as I was very excited about dual 4-foot screens. Then came the big reveal: Kyocera, a name not oft spoken aloud when it comes to notable Android phones. The phone Sprint and Kyocera shook hands for one full minute to release was called the Echo, Kyocera Echo, or Sprint Echo, however you want to title it. This phone is one that can be a single screen phone or fold out to a laptop or single giant screen mode. It's 3G, it's running Android 2.2 Froyo, it's got a single 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and it's less than a week away from MWC 2011. Why would Sprint and Kyocera release such a wild card?

Sprint doubles down on Android for 4G

With Verizon rolling out their 4G LTE network in over 200 cities this year, and the inevitable rumor mill of a 4G iPhone on the horizon, wireless telecom Sprint isn't sitting on their laurels.  In an effort to shore up their lead on the superfast 4G network race, Sprint will be adding more 4G supported Android devices this year. With a current offering of about twenty 4G devices, Sprint will be bumping up their Android4G offerings to more than seventy percent of their mobile catalog.

Sprint Kyocera Echo First Ad Spot

We've been live at Sprint's special event on Monday, February 7 where we've been treated to an odd set of events including David Blaine underwater letting fish come out of his mouth, a pair of CEO fellow shaking hands for a full minute, and a brand new phone from Sprint and Kyocera, the Echo, a dual-screen Android smartphone with a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, a WVGA 3.5 inch touchscreen on both pieces of the phone, and several modes of operation.

Sitting here at Sprint's special event in New York we found out that the newest product to come off the assembly line is the Kyocera Echo, a dual screen fold-open phone working with Android 2.2 Froyo. Moving into describing the inner workings of this phone, Sprint told the audience that this phone can be used in several modes: single screen, laptop mode, or fullscreen tablet mode. One example of how dual screen might be employed is in the email client, writing the message below and having a preview above.
