IMO it's already behind the curve and it's not even out yet.

i'm with you. is it neat...yeah. but why would sprint go for this dual screen feature and a 1ghz snapdragon when tegra dual cores are the future?

i would rather have more performance than more surface area. my two cents anyways. still holding to upgrade until sprint announces something more than dual screen :/

You obviously don't know what you are talking about if you seriously think Tegra2 is special they just did leap jump. But yes I do agree 2GS is no match for Tegra2 SoC's for now but fact is when HTC is dropping superior dualcore SoC's as they did have the profile but they didn't have any application in the market for it.

Far as this device goes I am impressed but as someone said I rather have bigger screen than this lol but this is nice specially the tablet mode.

ok, I name dropped with the Tegra brand, but what I was eluding to was the fact that dual core is on the horizon and other companies seem to have their eyes set on phones while sprint decided to go this route. neat, but I doubt this will be the next Evo or anything close to it for that matter.

I know lol I mean other than dual screen this is nothing special thats all. The tablet mode does have appeal to few which is why I myself found it impressing but ill stick to bigger screen. Evo(CDMA) was flagship for sprint due to post 2009 HD2(GSM) profile and ATM other than DHD(GSM) and TB(CDMA) nothing comes close in terms of 4.3" display that is, trust me I know I was one of the few people legally who owned the HD2 months before it came out in USA and we need more bigger screen once you use it you can't go back as its never the same lol.

Red face Rom for rooted Kyocera Echo

I just bought a Kyocera echo yesterday, i was wondering if anyone out there knows if there are any forums for rom software i can put on this phone or at lease updates?

I am not having any luck finding any! I am just looking for something that would increase the font size, the font on this phone is terrible if you have bad eyes!

Any help would be awesome, i would really appreciate it!
