Here we have the briefest of hands-ons with the new Sprint Kyocera Echo — the dual-screen phone announced today in New York City. For the most part, what you see is what you get. You’ve got what appears to be a mild mannered smartphone — albeit one with a second 3.5-inch screen tucked underneath. stack them on top of each other, and you have a 4.7-inch monster that’s a near dead ringer for a Nintendo 3DS.

As far as other specs go, you’ve got a 1GHz Snapdragon processor pushing Android 2.2. And one thing we’ll say at the outset — with all the APIs Sprint and Kyocera have had to invent for the phone and its two screens, updates might take a little while. We’ll just have to see.

Having just announced the all-new Kyocera Echo to the world, Sprint has also uploaded the above video to YouTube to give us a better overall look at the device itself. Thus far views have been rather mixed on the device with the majority of folks comparing it to looking more like a Nintendo DS then anything else. Stay tuned though; we’ll get some more time with the device. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts about it. [YouTube]

Angry Birds Valentines Day Edition

We got a sneak peek at the new Angry Birds Valentines Day edition last week and it is now available via an update. 

If you have Angry Birds Seasons, go to the Market and download the update. The icon will now be red and pink and the Valentines Day version will appear next to the others in the main menu. If you don’t have this version, please find links after the break.

Rovio continues to develop quality versions for their massively popular game and this should continue that track record. Now excuse me, I have to go back to beating the pigs. Thanks Jeff!
