Kyocera Echo

Are two screens better than one? That's what Sprint would have you think now that the carrier has introduced Kyocera's Echo, a dual-touchscreen smartphone, running Android 2.2. The Kyocera Echo features two 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreens connected by a hinge. The two screens can be used independently or combined to operate as one large screen, according to The Wall Street Journal. The handset also features a Simul-Task mode that allows users to simultaneously run two of the Echo's seven core applications.

According to Wired.com, the Echo will run on Sprint's 3G network and features Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities. The smartphone is also equipped with a 1 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 1 GB of RAM and a 5-megapixel camera that is capable of 720p HD video capture. The Echo will cost $199.99 with a two-year contract and a $100 mail-in rebate.
