SGH-D880 DuoS - Dual Sims Mobile Phone



SGH-D880 DuoS - Dual Sims Mobile Phone

Recently, Samsung Mobile has announced a new phone. It’s a dual-sim phone. This single unit mobile phone is able to support two sim cards simultaneously. It supports GSM 900/1800/1900 EDGE networks. It has 2.3” QVGA display on the front panel. It’s equipped with 3.2 Megapixel CMOS camera with autofocus function. It also has built-in FM Radio tuner. And never forget the basic features like the Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 connectivity, which are essentials.

How much does it cost? Several sources quoted as around RM2000 (around US$500). I’ve not got the exact info on the price yet. Price varies in different countries.

Well, as far as I know, this technology is not new. I heard china has released this kind of mobile phones earlier, and with cheaper prices. I believe, the specification and reliabilities are the points to be compared.

This kind of phone helps consumers who carry more than two mobile numbers. They normally will need two or more mobile phones. So now, this phone, SGH-D880 helps reduce burden. No more multi-phones, but a single phone supporting 2 sims.

Who knows in future, we might not need any sim cards at all. There must be certain ways to make mobile phones more simplified, with better mobile communication technologies. Nevertheless, network securities must be monitored as well. Security equates to privacy of users.
