Kyocera today launched the Kyocera Android Developer Program, which it hopes will entice developers to target its Android devices, such as the dual-display Echo. The program contains the tools developers need, such as a software developers kits, so that developers may create applications optimized for the Echo and its two displays. The Echo will ship with a number of applications already optimized for its two-screen experience, and will also run all the applications in the Android Market. This SDK is so developers can go the extra mile and take advantage of the additional screen real estate provided by the Echo. The Echo is launching April 17 for $199.

I'm hoping some apps

are out there that are just begging for dual screens to really make them amazing and the developers jump at the chance to get on board. I'm not predicting or even hoping for thousands of apps like this or anything crazy, but a good solid base that people really like that the two screens really allow to make them work would be awesome. Not saying I'm all over this phone or anything, but for some people and some apps, it might really be something that works for them and I hope we see something new and noteworthy.

I'm sure I'll get lots of snarky comments about how the phone is doomed and all, but I hope it does ok.
I'm most concerned about the battery. The last time Sprint shipped a phone with an extra battery (The Upstage) it was a HORRIBLE phone.

The fact that they are shipping it with an extra battery tells me that they know the battery is going to suck ...
