Sprint Kyocera Echo Gets A Software Update

Last year, Kyocera launched the amazing Kyocera Echo smartphone. This handset is exclusively available for the Sprint customers in the US. The Kyocera Echo is the world’s first dual-touchscreen smartphone. It comes with a dual 3.5-inch LCD WVGA with 800 x 480 pixels resolution, 4.7 inches diagonally with 800 x 960 pixels resolution when opened, 1 GHz Snapdragon processor and more.

The Kyocera Echo was originally launched with the Android 2.2 (Froyo) Operating System. However, Sprint later rolled out the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) update for this device. Now, Sprint is rolling out a new software update for this amazing smartphone. Before you get too excited, let me tell you that it is not the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) update. The latest update comes with security update as well as other enhancements and fixes. Check out the complete changelog below.
