Sprint haters...

Damn, every single one of the Sprint haters showed up for this article.

I'm 100% certain that if this phone would have been released by Verizon or even ATT, the same people who say the phone sux(with out ever having done more than see a picture of it) would be busting out the knee pads for a long tasty gulp of the gooey goodness that VZW and ATT would gladly dump in your hungry little nuthugging mouths. Smile

Wow.... ATT and VZW DID NOT release a dual screen phone FIRST???!?! Quick release the hate trolls!!!

i think it was more about sprint hyping up this announcement that was supposed to be such a big deal, and its a different concept, but as much as sprint touts "its" 4g network, why would they release such a flagship device for their 3g network? if this device showed up in my shipment as something vzw wants me to sell, i would have said wtf, kyocera? 2 screens? no 4g? thats a cute little gimmick, but my customers probally wouldnt be interested, im just sayin

One of the problems Sprint has always had an issue with, is marketing. VZW and ATT have excelled in this category. Business is built on hype. Sprint did a great thing here and they need to keep this going while adding to it.

Why is it so bad to create an interest in a product? Look how everyone was waiting to see what Sprint had to announce. Even if the product or news wasn't what some expected, it did bring a new breakthrough product to light. Goal reached.

I'm not sure how Sprint is labeling this device, but if I were to take a guess, it is more of an innovation push rather than flagship. If my memory serves me correctly, Sprint usually pushes their flagship devices at CTIA. So I don't think we've heard the last of Sprint's next big...

I whole-heartedly agree, Cleanski. it reminds me of the Backflip which I was wtf'ing over when we got it.
This jammy might be okay for Sprint, but no 4G? it will coast.

I think kyocera wanted Sprint to back them up on this announcement and Sprint went with it because it wasnt ready for CES. Its obviously not gonna be Sprints top notch phone, lack of 4g gives that away. Wink But all the people b#$%! about the 4g fee now how a 3g option. If any other carrier had annouced this the fanboys would be eating it up but Sprint annouces this and its a fail gtfoh. Props to Sprint and Kyocera for the innovation and design! Cool

As of Jan 30th Sprint charges the extra $10 fee on all smartphones, regardless of changing your plan or signing any new agreement to the new charge. So all of the people that are complaining about having to pay for 4G when they are not in a supported market are not not the only ones being screwed. Twisted Evil

Sort of like having an Iphone 4 on Verizon with nothing new, just the same Iphone 4 that ATT has had for a year. What's the point? Laughing

I love Sprint. I *Bleeping* HATE Kyocera. As I have previously stated had this been manufactured by anyone else (even Motorola) I would have let it slide. But for Sprint to make a big deal about a *Bleeping* Kyocera and have me licking my chops pondering about it for over a month?! Hell no!

pay attention cametrolling, nobody's hatin on your beloved sprint. people are hating on kyocera more than anything, but I feel that's pretty justified considering their track record. sprint is definitely taking a gamble with this, we can all agree on that.

HTC at one point had a horrible track record too. One WOW product, now they are enjoying elegance.

Ive been with Htc since my very first touchscreen phone the pcpocket and my user name comes from 2 of there flagship devices. I can tell u now not everthing htc touches turns to gold but I give any product they unveil a Fighting chance. This is kyocera hail marry and it deserves a look just like any motorola or apple product. The videos I have watched so far have won me over. Cool
