Kyocera has confirmed to Phone Scoop that a software update will be distributed to the Echo smartphone starting today. The device brings most features of Android 2.3 Gingerbread to the Echo. The update also includes a few other features: pinch-to-zoom support; an improved downloads app; an upgrade to the Swype 3.0 virtual keypad; and Eco mode. Contrary to published reports, the update does not include support for NFC nor Wi-Fi calling. The Echo is a dual-screened Android smartphone that is sold by Sprint.
