1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Update:

    The screens are really sharp and clear. IMO the best screens on Spring and LOT better than the EVO. Go into the store and compare a photograph, you will notice the difference.

    Speakers are crisp and clean. They aren't as loud as the Motorola phones but are cleaner sound.

    The tablet extension app makes most apps work in dual screen mode but a few of em don't run well. The biggest benefit of the dual screen though is when watching video or browsing on the web because it's basically a tablet.

    How's battery life. With the 13xxmA battery it probably does not last that long?

    it's not bad. Probably comparable to Epic 4g. Definitely better than the EVO.

    No offense. I know it is because I am old I suppose. I do NOT get this generation's fascination with "unboxing" videos.
    Who gives a * what the box looks like?
    Apparently the generation behind me does because they are all over YouTube. lol
    Otherwise: it looks cool. Glad to see Kyocera still in the market.

    It just gives everybody a "hands on" experience. Nothing special just something cool to watch for those who are all about technology.

    I am "all about technology".

    Unboxing is just too geeky even for me.

    :) Just turn the damn thing on already! Hahaha :)

    People want to watch unboxings just like people want to post on a forum about phones lol.

    Plus imo its a more fun "hands-on" video since you get to see the packaging and marketing around it. Gives you a better idea of what people are buying.
