Kyocera Echo: Sprint Announces Release Date

We have a bit of good news now for those of you waiting to get hold of the much-anticipated dual-screened Kyocera Echo, as Sprint has just announced a release date. The handset — which runs Android 2.2 Froyo — will be available to purchase from April 17th for $199.99 on contract.

According to a recent article by Chris Ziegler over at, the smartphone will be available for pre-order as from March 26th. The Kyocera Echo comes with two 3.5-inch WVGA touchscreen displays and a 5-megapixel camera that’s capable of capturing 720p video.

Both displays are connected by a three-dimensional ‘pivot hinge,’ which enables users to operate the two displays independently, side by side or combined together to make a larger 4.7-inch integrated display. The handset features Wi-Fi (b/g/n) and Sprint’s nationwide 3G network.

The Kyocera Echo, which has been receiving some rave reviews since it was first announced back in February, also features Wi-Fi hotspot capability that supports wireless connections for up to 5 different devices. The handset comes with 1GB internal memory and a 8GB microSD card.
