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.
