Sprint gets Kyocera Echo on April 17
 
 

Last month the Kyocera Echo Android smartphone broke cover for the first time and the thing looks really cool. The smartphone has two screens and runs the Android OS. Each of the screens measures 3.5-inches and they are mated together on a pivot hinge that allows them to be operated independently or side by side to for a single large 4.7-inch screen.

The smartphone runs Android 2.2 and will have access to the hoards of apps on the Android Market when it launches. The Echo operates on the Sprint nationwide 3G network and will support 802.11b/g WiFi as well. It also had hotspot capability to support up to five external devices.

On the back of the smartphone is a 5MP still camera with autofocus and flash. It can record 720p HD video and supports corporate and personal email accounts as well as real time chat using Google Talk. Bluetooth is integrated and it has a full HTML web browser and 1GB of onboard storage. The storage space can be expanded with microSD cards up to 32GB and it ships with an 8GB card.

“The industry response to this innovative device has been overwhelmingly positive, confirming the need for a pocket-size multitasking handset with a tablet-like experience,” said Yasuhiro Ohishi, vice president of sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications Inc. “With the multitude of Android apps available for download, Echo is an ideal tool for today’s multimedia, multitasking lifestyles.”

Sprint is running a contest for people to win an Echo called Duel for the Dual starting today. The smartphone will be able to be purchased by anyone on the Sprint network and new customers can pre-order starting on March 26. The smartphone will be available to pick up on April 17. The device sells for $199.99 with a new 2-year contract.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
