Besides a lot of crapware from Sprint, the Echo comes with a link to Kyocera’s website, which showcases the important Tablet Extension App (which allows you to run most third party apps in tablet mode), plus some recommended apps. The recommended apps are pretty low quality, and don’t work with the simul-task functionality of the Echo, leaving us confused as to why Kyocera would feature these apps in the first place. Speaking of third party apps, you’ll be happy to know that launchers like LauncherPro will work just fine over both displays.
In terms of settings, there aren’t any dual-screen specific settings. You’ll want to keep brightness on automatic, or you’ll run out of battery well before dinner. Beyond that, we can see that the Echo allows for side-loading of apps, and that there is around 500MB of onboard storage available, which is supplemented by the 8GB microSD card that comes preinstalled.
Coming up soon we’ll have the full review of the Kyocera Echo!
