Kyocera Echo dual-screen smartphone hits Sprint April 17
Sprint will allow customers to start reserving the Echo on March 26 via sprint.com/echo, for pickup on April 17. On that day, the smartphone will also be available in Sprint stores and online.
The Kyocera Echo was announced in February. It features two, 3.5-inch 800-by-480 LCD touch-screen displays that can operate side-by-side, independently, or together via a 4.7-inch integrated display.
The super copper alloy hinge is made of "liquid metal," Sprint said back in February, and can withstand drops of up to seven feet.
The Echo will run Android 2.2 Froyo. It has Wi-Fi hotspot capability, a 5-megapixel camera with flash, autofocus, and digital zoom, and 720p camcorder. It has 1GB of onboard memory, and an 8GB microSD card for the external memory card slot, which can expand up to 32GB.
