Now that we’ve had the Kyocera Echo for a day, we’ve had a chance to take a closer look at this unusual phone. To satisfy your curiosity about the Echo’s features, the video to the right gives a closer look at the phone and what it can do.

Running on Sprint’s 3G EVDO Rev. A network, the Kyocera Echo uses the Android 2.2 operating system and has a 1 GHz processor. It’s the display that really gets your attention: Two 3.5-inch LCD screens that dock together to create a single 4.7-inch display with the resolution of 960 x 800 pixels. In the video to the right, Wirefly’s Bob Kovacs shows how you can split the screens to have one application on one screen and another application on the second screen, as well as how the two screens make some tasks easier… and some are just strange.

  • I’ve got one now… Interesting concept. I’ve gotten used to the hinge but usually leave it closed unless web browsing, etc. I don’t like then hinge through the middle of the screen, so if I can, I turn it so that it is 1/2 way down the screen instead. Much easier to deal with and still very useable. I’ve noticed each lcd is a little different color tone on a white webpage. Top screen seems “cooler” or a slight blue tint to the white. anyone else? any new comments after testing for a while?

  • I’m in love with the functionality. My biggest problems are honestly the aesthetics of the thing, and I’ve got some question the long term integrity of the hinge.

    • Hey Six! I’m actually impressed with the hinge on the Echo. It is made from thick metal, so I do not think the hinge will be a point of failure. Only time will tell, of course.

      • Oh its actually metal?! I heard somewhere that it was plastic and felt a bit chintzy. I hate getting bad info. Well this is great, maybe I will switch to sprint then, my contract with verizon is up shortly and I figured I would switch to T-mobile, but this device will make me rethink things for a while. Oh and thanks for the reply.

        • Hey Six, I’ve looked at the Echo’s hinge carefully and it is definitely metal. Pretty thick metal, actually.

          Hope that helps!
