Dual-SIM mobiles have always caught the fancy of subscribers who find the need to use more than one line but do not want to carry two devices. Until now, Samsung had been the only major manufacturer who had dabbled into the world of Dual-SIM mobiles.
However, the world’s number one mobile manufacturer has stepped up to the plate with two new devices, the Nokia C1 (left) and the C2 (right).
Both are basic low-end devices. The C1 offers the most basic features – no network data, no external card slot, no J2ME support; just voice and SMS. Only one SIM is functional at a time.
The C2 is a little bit more advanced. Both SIMs are active at the same time (Dual Standby), there’s GPRS and a web browser, and there’s a microSD card slot.
Both devices are expected in the market towards the end of the year.
