A Kid in a Lab Coat Tells Us the Kyocera Echo is Nearly Indestructable

The Kyocera Echo launched to pretty mixed feelings.

I have mixed feelings about the Kyocera Echo. It’s dual-screen design is actually pretty clever — a lot like the NEC dual-screen tablet we saw at CES — but something about it doesn’t scream “your next Android device.” Maybe it’s the Kyocera name tag and the history of disappointment that goes along with it.
