Sprint Selling Kyocera Echo Early to Sprint Premier Members

If you’ve been a dedicated Sprint customer for years, or have a plan that meets the minimum monthly requirements, you may already be a member of the carrier’s Sprint Premier program, earning you discounts and letting you upgrade phones more frequently. The latest perk for Premier members lets you buy a new Kyocera Echo dual-screen Android before anyone else.

The Echo will be available to most of us this Sunday, April 17, but Premier members get a bit of a head-start. Sure, it might convey more bragging rights if Sprint was to let its users get a new phone a week or two early, instead of a matter of days, but it’s a neat gesture nonetheless. The company is even sweetening the deal by letting Premier members pick up an Echo without having to pay any upgrade fees, and it’ll ship the phone out to you free of charge.

The rest of us will just have to wait until next week, when the innovative phone hits stores. Sprint will be selling the Echo for about $200 after instant savings on a two-year contract. If you just can’t wait, and don’t qualify for the Premier deal, try killing the time with the online simulator, letting you get a feel for what it’s like to get things done on a dual-screen Android.
