Kyocera Echo, First Dual-Touch Screen Android Smartphone: Check Out Specs and Photos

Don’t think of this as the slimmer version of Nintendo DS, folks. ‘Coz it’s not. This is still a smartphone, claimed as the “first” to have a well-proportioned touch screen displays.

Yes, this handset is built with dual-touch screen displays in which you can merge to have a bigger display. Called as the Kyocera Echo, this smartphone is powered by a 1 GHz 2nd gen Snapdragon processor in an Android Froyo platform.

Notable specs and features include:

  • Two (2) 3.5-inch WVGA touch screen (480 x 800) displays
  • 4.7-inch (960 x 800) single display if the 2 displays are placed side by side
  • Android 2.2 (Froyo)
  • 1 GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 5MP camera with 720p HD video recording
  • 1GB internal memory
  • MicroSD, pre-installed with 8GB SD card
  • 3G only
  • 1,370 mAh Li-ion battery

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.
