[READ AND ANSWER EACH QUESTION AND WATCH THE VIDEOS BEFORE YOU ANSWER THE QUESTIONS OR YOU WILL GET ZERO CREDIT]

The cellphone companies and manufacturers are at WAR.  They keep trying to outdo each other by releasing the next “BEST PHONE” or “iPhone killer”.  Sprint which locked up the market last year with the ACTUAL best phone the EVO 4G started to fall off when alot of other companies came back with BETTER PHONES.  Sprint unveiled their latest phone yesterday to be released by late April at the latest.  The Kyocera Echo is the first dual screen phone.  But it is 3G, has a single processor and supposedly HORRIBLE battery life.

A)  Is this phone too late to the party to be a serious contender for best phone and WHY?

B)  Do you think people would switch their current phones for this phone?  Why or why not?

C)  If you analyze the phone, is it more appealing than an iPhone or an android phone?

D)  Give me a comparison/contrast with what are some of the positives (pros) and negatives (cons) about this phone?  Explain your answers.

    A. Well a lot of people seem to like this phone though I must say it will probably be hard for them to come back with the new iPhone 4 coming out.
    B. People may switch their current phone for this phone because it newest thing out although I personally wouldn’t.
    C. In my opinion it isn’t more appealing because I personally do not like the idea of the dual screen.
    D. Some positives are the touch screen and keyboard. Some negatives are the short battery life

    A) I think so. There are already tons of phones like this so it’s not really needed now.

    B) Depending on if it’s even worth it. Which by the looks of it, people will like this phone as much as an iphone.

    C) It is basically the same as the other phones anyhow. So, i don’t think it’s MORE appealing, but just as appealing as the other phones.

    D) pros: Duel screen, apps, all the good stuff
    cons: Too late to make big sales like iphone and android, same as the other modern-tech phones

    A.) I THINK IT IS. A LOT OF PEOPLE RELY ON BATTERY ON A PHONE. PLUS THE OTHER PHONE IN MY OPINION ARE WAY BETTER. BUT BECAUSE THIS SCREEN CAN GET BIG DON’T MEAN IT THE BEST.

    B.) LIKE I SAID NO, THE BATTERY LI8FE SUCKS.

    C.) NO. BUT THAT’S ONLY IN MY OPINION. BECUASE BOTH OF THOSE PHONE GET ON THE INTERNET AND ALSO OFFER MORE.

    D.) POSITIVE: THE SCREEN GETS BIGGER, TOUCH SCREEN
    NEGATIVE: BATTERY SUCKS, SLOW

    A) This phone is a bit late yes. Especially with the features.

    B) I do not think that this phone would be good enough for people to switch from there current phones to.

    C) If you analyze this phone it is not more apealing than the i phone. Some of the features really suck.

    D) I dont think anyone is going to want a phone with all the new regular features that is late in the picture, Has bad life, Looks like it may have alot of problems, And that they havent got all the wa figured out.
