OK, I found some specs. Nothing exciting esp seeing that the battery is the same amp as the EVO so with this one, one can expect worse battery life than the EVO due to the dual screens which compared to the EVO isn't much bigger.

Since now the $10 premium fee is in effect for all Sprint smartphones, I see no reason that the Echo is any better that than the EVO given there is no 4G for the Echo.
I'm missing the fact in how two 3.5 screen total 4.7 when the EVO has 4.3 in a single screen, OK perhaps there is only 4.7 viewable but I would thought marketing people would claim two 3.5 screens would equal 7.0 inch total screen size when dual displays are used. If 4.7 is the total combined dual screen size, why not just get the EVO?
With the new prem fee effective Feb 1st, that's going to kill Echo sales.
With no 4G possiblity, the EVO will kill the Echo.
Sprint states that it will ship with an extra battery and external charger so they do expect poor battery life even before it's released,
Why release a phone that does less than current phones? Sound much like the AT&T Xperia X10 when they only have 1.6 Android OS.
The only thing the Echo is pushing is how low of quality that consumers will accept when compared to current smartphones already available!
