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

ORQ

The cellphone companies 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 which is available NOW in stores. 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.

  13. No.Kids will love the phone. Yes because it doesn’t cost much and you can watch movies and you can get on face book. Yes because the iphone will run out of style from this phone. Pros:you can get on facebook.Cons:if it’s anything like the ipod it would be a little hard to use.

    B. yes because they can be texting wile you are talking.
    C. yes because you can be two different things at once.
    D.the iphone has one touch screen.this phone has two

  18. a) I think it is a little late. Lots of people use phones like 24/7. So if the battery life is horrible, no one would want to buy it. I don’t care about if it is the 1st whatever, it needs to have a good battery life. I talk a lot on the phone so I would expect a good battery.
    b)No! It doesn’t have a good battery Life. Lots of people would need that if they run a bussniss. Or they just talk on the phone alot. i vote No!
    c) It does look alot more apealing. I still don’t think it matters though. It is just like a regular touch screen. The only difference is that it has 2 touch screens. I don’t really think you would need that.
    d) Pros:
    -touch screen
    -really cool
    Cons:
    – low battery
    -doesn’t need two touch screens
