AT CTIA 2011, Kent German takes his First Look at the Kyocera Echo and how its two screens function.

I really appreciated being able to have a full large keyboard on one screen and the writing area on the other. The extra room made for easier typing.
A Web page can run on both displays as well. The gap between them limits long finger swipes, but that wasn't too bothersome.
When playing a game, you can see two player views simultaneously.
On the top screen are the current photos you're viewing, while the bottom screen shows your entire gallery.
In the camera mode, the user controls and viewfinder are on separate displays.
You can get even more of the country in one view.
The main menu can double up as well.
