Here’s an interesting one to continue the day. Rumor has it that Kyocera is Sprint’s guest of honor as they – along with magician David Blaine – promise to unveil something, tonight, that will show you “the impossible is possible.” As BGR quips, Kyocera isn’t the first manufacturer we thought of when thinking about magic, but considering Huawei’s latest developments – known to be a company who makes cheap handsets but surprised us with a series of high-powered devices at CES – we’ll give anyone a chance to impress. We should know more by tonight as Kevin and Rob will be bussing to New York to check it all out live. [Bloomberg]

[Update]: Acording to Wall Street Journal, it’ll be a dual-screen device called the Echo. From their report:

Sprint Nextel Corp. plans to unveil a smartphone late Monday that includes a twin set of touch screens that give the device a pseudo-tablet design, according to a person familiar with the device.

The device, called the Echo and made by Kyocera Corp. of Japan, features two 3.5-inch touch screens that can be stacked side by side.
