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.
