Tonight's Sprint Surprise: A Dual-Screen Android Phone?

Sprint's hosting a big ol' magic party tonight in NYC, with special drowsy-eyed guest David Blaine helping introduce "another industry first". According to the WSJ, that means a dual-screen Android handset from Kyocera.

Kyocera's Echo will apparently feature a pair of 3.5-inch screens that can "stack side by side", using a pivot hinge that lets you use it either in "tablet light" mode or like a traditional smartphone. Other details - whether it's 4G, how much it'll cost, when it'll be available - aren't forthcoming yet, but we should get a boatload of info tonight.

Although I'm still holding out hope that all we'll see at the event is just Blaine making Sprint CEO Dan Hesse levitate for 20 minutes. [WSJ]
