Samsung D880 DuoS Dual SIM card phone

Mobile phones that can carry and work with two SIM cards in nothing new really. We’ve seen quite a few such models, but usually made by little known manufacturers and mainly in Asia.

Well, it looks like Samsung is planing to bring dual SIM card mobile phones into mainstream in Europe with their Samsung DuoS D880 phone.

Samsung D880 DuoS slider can work with two SIM cards from different operators or support two phone numbers from the same operator.

Both cards in Samsung SGH-D880 can work simultaneously to make and receive calls, send/receive SMS messages. The user also can easily select which card to use for mobile browsing, e-mail and other multimedia services. Your WAP/MMS/E-mail profiles are switched automatically when different card is selected.

When you receive the call, the name of the card that for the call flashes on screen and each SIM card can be assigned it’s own ringtone. In case of missed calls, the relevant card is also indicated.

Except for the dual SIM cards, Samsung DuoS D880 is your ordinary 2.5G Samsung slider with:

  • GSM 900/1800/1900 EDGE connectivity
  • 2.3″ QVGA Display
  • 3.2 Megapixel camera with autofocus
  • FM Radio
  • Bluetooth 2.0 A2DP, USB 2.0
  • 1200 mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 104x51x18.9

The only thing not to like, is the price – Samsung D880 DuoS is expected to cost around $700. But when you consider that you won’t have to carry two different phones in your pocket, the price tag doesn’t look so bad anymore.

Samsung DuoS is expected to go on sale in November.

    hi budi, yar itz good set but itz not good for advanced users, coz its slow in processing data, like typing sms, sending, or switching inbetween files, or data….so it sugested that it is good for xecutive class,
    more, it has a ribon problem, that is acutually hapens with sliding sets, n mostly with samsung, so to resolve this, it has to open the set, n that really big deal
    instead of d880, 780 is good if we dnt want2c ribbon problem…

    Hi have a d880 it pairs with pc however cannot access says phone not connected service cannot be found??? can anyone help please.I have broadcom bluetooth.

  • okorodan

    I bought the phone and its about 6mo. unfortunately in the last one month or so, it goes off and on by itself. I know of friends whose phones(same model) behaved similarly and eventually had to buy new other phones. Why does it behave this way. Makes me scared of buying another samsung! Cant advise anyone to buy it to stay for longer period. Your answer can be helpful.
