Kyrocera Update gone bad
FYI on the echo
I've been saying this all along...
"The Echo is the first handset that can honestly and truly multitask, as far as I am concerned"
And it's true.
No matter how hard you bash Windows phone or iOS, NO PHONE truly multi-tasks unless you can actually USE two apps at the same time like on a computer.
It would be fun to see a better manufacturer produce a phone like this... HTC???
Has Sanyo/Kyocera made any successful phones yet?
AD discussions continues below...
i would like to thank sprint for thinking outside the box.
I'm hoping some apps
I'm sure I'll get lots of snarky comments about how the phone is doomed and all, but I hope it does ok.
1370 MAh battery?
Running two full size screen? I see this thing lasting 2 hours at a time (no matter what the PS spec says).
Two months before this phone gets delegated to pre-paid.
There is no way people are going to contract themselves into this Kyocera Phone.

certain apps have been designed to run on both screen, like the web browser, but a market launch will show how well this will work. i'm sure the extra battery strongly will come in handy , but no excuse for poor battery life.
lets see what Kyocera can do..
they are going to revamp their look.
But still i have doubts about this phone. Without a Duel core, or Front cam I don't see this being the new "it" phone.
Looks sorta like a Nintendo DS...
I wouldn't fault Sprint for having an event for this phone, either. I heard some other journalists (okay, just Peter Ha from The Daily) complaining that they didn't want to go because the news was leaked in the WSJ. But this is definitely a phone you'd have to see and hold in your hands to cover properly.
The key is the number of apps that support the feature. They don't need many, just the most important few that people will want to run simultaneously. The SDK is a throw-away. They will not sell enough phones to make the SDK enticing to developers. But as l...
I think it's great.
Honestly, what were you expecting? And furthermore, why are you assuming the phone will be junk just because it's a Kyocera? No their record's not the greatest, but they've surprised us before. Give it a chance. I for one think it's a stunning concept, and I'll reserve my judgment on whether or not the phone is worth it until I've had my own hands on it and seen it in action.
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.
Wow.... ATT and VZW DID NOT release a dual screen phone FIRST???!?! Quick release the hate trolls!!!
I am totally in love with the concept. Absolutely ground breaking. Multi-tasking to the next level. Two screens definitely better than one. Love how the second screen doubles as qwerty keyboard. Definitely an industry first and something I could transition to. Nothing like it.
I'm not a fan of the limited screen real estate with the size of the phone. If a phone is going to be this large, more screen and a little less hardware would be my preference. Battery life must be horrific. Limited functions for the simul- tasking seems to be a temporary drawback. Hopefully it will improve. Limited directed market. Not for everyone. Anything with hinges like this, is an accident waiting to happen. Lack of 4G was a disappointment, b...
The reasons people think this will fail are all wrong....
Verizon's too expensive, AT&T drops calls and lacks capacity, T Mobile coverage sucks, IDEN is dead, Tracfone is a rip off, Metro PCS is only in a few cities, US Cellular's phones suck, WIMAX isn't LTE, GSM is bigger than CDMA, prepaid is for poor people, contracts are too restricting..... on and on it goes.
Different people want different things out of their phones and technology. Of all cell phones currently being used in the world, a fraction of 1% are any given model. It's a wide open field. All these diffenent technologies, carreirs, manufacturers, form factors exist for a reason. Not every person wants the same thing. (No Apple people, not everyone wou...
if it has a tablet mode could it get 3.0 honeycomb?
or could it be possible that if it can't get it from google can it be rooted? Hmmmmmm...?
