We won’t be seeing the Kyocera Echo here in the Philippines ‘coz it would be an exclusive handset to Sprint subscribers in the US. It’s just really interesting to see a smartphone that somehow can also manifest the looks of a tablet. Or can even run apps in “simultasking” mode like what we see on a dual-monitor computer setup. But to be honest, at least in my own humble opinion, though Kyocera and Sprint built the very first dual-screen smartphone – I don’t think it’s really that much impressive.
