Kyocera Double-Headed Echo Phone

The Kyocera Echo is the strangest phone I've ever seen. Inside, it's just mundane—but on the outside, it's a batshit bizarre, morphing, dual screen stab at DS form with iPad function.

Where it could have reveled in its strangeness, it's entirely weighed down by it. If you're adding a second full-size screen, it sure as hell better do something worthwhile. Extra space for your email. More space for contacts. It's slow. It's wasteful. It's essentially two average Androids stitched together.

It's just more glass. Multitasking—a term Kyocera and Sprint are hawking like a child who just learned a swear word for the first time is important. What's not important? Hypertasking and simultasking, two made up non-terms that Kyocera is flinging around.

If your original tech sales aren't impressive, slap 2 together and re-release it.

Well, that's...unusual. I can barely manage my trac-phone, yet alone two smartphones at the same time. o.O

I mean it looks rather cool but I'd rather stick to my WP7 phone than it xD

most people barely have the attention span for multitasking much less simul-tasking gimmicks...it looks like a neat idea but not the most practical gadget.

It seems like every time I come to this site I'm a winner, a 100,000th visitor, or a nigerian prince. I love being this lucky.
