Kyocera Echo Dual Touchscreen Phone Release Date and Price

Remember the dual touchscreen smartphone called the Kyocera Echo?

Well, the official press release is doing the rounds and it not only states the pre-order date of March 26th but gives the launch date and price!

You’ll need to gather up $200 ($100 per screen if that makes you feel better) and then you’ll be able to enjoy all the fun offered by the “the nation’s first dual-touchscreen smartphone” – that nation being the United States as this Android is a Sprint exclusive at the moment.

“The industry response to this innovative device has been overwhelmingly positive, confirming the need for a pocket-size multitasking handset with a tablet-like experience,” said Yasuhiro Ohishi, vice president of sales and marketing at Kyocera Communications Inc. “With the multitude of Android apps available for download, Echo is an ideal tool for today’s multimedia, multitasking lifestyles.”

Launching on April 17th the phone is packing a 5 megapixel camera with 720p video capture, 1GB of onboard storage with a handy 8GB microSD card in with the deal (expandable to 32GB), Android 2.2, and that lovely pair of 3.5-inch WVGA displays.

If that don’t get you some appreciative nods and the occassional “what phone is that?” I don’t know what will.

It’s just a shame that there wasn’t a dual core to go with the dual screens….
