Kyocera Echo – World’s First Dual Screen Android Phone

February 8, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Check out the Kyocera Echo, the first dual-screen Android phone.

That’s right, dual-screen — that’s two 3.5-inch 480 x 800 displays which can be unfolded and used as a single 4.7-inch 960 x 800 surface. The screens are connected by a slick sliding liquid-metal hinge that Kyocera’s filed several patents on — the phone can be closed and used like a regular single-screen phone, unfolded all the way, or propped up into the faux-laptop configuration shown above.

Under the hood there’s a 1GHz second-gen Snapdragon running Android 2.2 — we’ll forgive the older software because Kyocera had to do extensive customization to add dual-screen support to seven core apps like the browser, email, and messaging.

The seven optimized apps can be run on each screen individually so you can have the browser up top and email below, and several of them include useful full-dual-screen views as well.

There’s also a new dual-screen app manager, which is brought up by tapping the two screens simultaneously.”
