Sprint announces Kyocera Echo dual-screen Android for $199 [UPDATED]

With David Blaine going about his daily business of regurgitating goldfish and reading Dr. Seuss underwater, Sprint’s Dan Hesse announced the Kyocera Echo at their hyped gala in NYC tonight. Echo is the world’s first dual-screen Android device, and will be available this spring for $199 after $100 mail-in rebate on a qualifying two-year plan ($10 premium data required). The phone will allow users to run apps on one of the two displays, or stretch them across both. The screens each measure 3.5″, and one can be pivoted and tucked away under the other.

The phone features four modes with various screen and software configurations: Tablet Mode, Optimized Mode, Simul-Task Mode, and Single-Screen Mode. It carries 1GB of internal storage, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, and a 5MP cam with flash that can capture 720p video.
