Sprint unveils dual touchscreen Kyocera 3G smartphone Sprint has unveiled the Kyocera Echo today, an Android device with dual touch screens.
The smartphone goes on sale in the Spring for $200 with contract.

Kyocera, of Japan, is not very well known in the United States although they do make a plethora of feature phones.

The Echo has dual 3.5-inch screens and will allow users to run multiple apps at the same time, or watch videos whilst surfing the Web on different screens, for example.

Another example is splitting the operations of one app, such as having the email inbox on the top screen and the email text in the bottom screen.

The company says the phone will run on Sprint's 3G network, not their WiMax 4G network, but 4G models may come in the future.

Finally, the phone has huge power drain, because of the dual screens, so Sprint is adding a free spare battery in the package.
