Someone pinch me it seems the Huffington Post has been acquired by AOL and Sprint’s big announcement is the Kyocera Echo.
Mobile, tech and Android media along with industry analysts were invited to an invite only event in New York City Monday evening. We will be n hand as CEO Dan Hesse and master illusionist and world record holder David Blaine present Sprint in another Industry first. We are very excited about this “Industry first” because until just a few hours ago Sprint had done a really good job of keeping the best kept secret in mobile so far.
Typically when we get one of these invitations we know exactly what the device is going to be or we have at least a good idea. With this Sprint event everyone was speculating from the LG 3D phone, to an HTC tablet, to the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4G for Sprint. Anyone of these could, we guess, be considered an Industry first.
Tonight, Bloomberg is reporting that the Industry first is the announcement of the Kyocera Echo Android device. They have received this information from an anonymous source familiar with the companies plans.
As we said above David Blaine and Dan Hesse are involved in this product launch which according to the invitation the two of them will show you that the “impossible is possible”. Not much has been leaked on the internet about the capabilities of the Kyocera Echo, perhaps it’s 3D and will hit the market before the LG 3D Android device does. Perhaps Bloomberg has it wrong?
We’ll know later tonight.
