The Wall Street Journal today reports that Sprint intends to introduce a new Android-based smartphone from Kyocera that is equipped with dual 3.5-inch touch displays. The Journal, citing sources familiar with Sprint's plans, says the Echo has adjustable screens that can be placed side-by-side, and users will be able to drag content from one screen to the other. The Echo has a pivot hinge which will also allow one screen to be tucked underneath the other, giving it a more mainstream smartphone appearance. Neither Sprint nor Kyocera has confirmed these details, but Sprint has an event scheduled in NYC this evening. Phone Scoop will be reporting live from the event.

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...
It's a KYOCERA?
It had better not suck.
What do you seriously expect? I sure hope this is not the announcement..all that hype for this major announcement over this.
Of course, it's going to suck.
sounds like a unicorn
