Dual SIM mobile phone could make dual tariff use less of a pain

Unless you like lugging round two handsets, or fiddling with your mobile SIM cards, there’s not really an easy way to manage two mobile phone contracts.

Now Chinese company Doubao has released what it claims is the first dual-SIM mobile phone with full functionality. It means you can squeeze the best bits out of two different tariffs and forget the rest.

The 728 phone, on which it appears, also features a 2.2in touch screen with support for handwriting recognition, a microSD slot, and a VGA camera. As Trusted Reviews say, it’s not a spectacular phone. What’s important is that it’s the first in its class.

Whilst they don’t reckon it’ll make it much further west, the concept could be an attractive one for other manufacturers. Whether the operators will be as happy? Probably not.

  • There are a number of Dual SIM Phones available in Pakistani markets and 99 % are Chinese made. I want to have one of them. But people and even mobile dealers say that these phones are not as successful as ordinary SIM phones. What do you say ?

  • This type of cellular phone is very essential now-a-days as from my experience of need and thanks to the creators of such mobile phones.

  • I believe it’s a breakthrough in mobile telephony. Now you have the freedom of using which ever SIM card offers you the best rate for calls, text or multimedia functions at any point in time without switching of your phone to swap cards.
