Finally Nokia has decided to manufacture dual SIM mobiles. In a press release Nokia unveils four new C series phones. Nokia C1-00 is 2-in-1 double SIM solution, C2-00 is dual SIM phone and C1-01 and C1-02 are single SIM phones.
Nokia C1 supports two SIM cards but you can keep only one SIM active at a time. However you can switch between two SIMs with a single click. It is especially useful for those who travel in different countries and for those who want to take advantage of reduced call rates.
Nokia C1-00 is priced at EUR 30 before taxes and subsidies and it will be available at the end of the fourth quarter of 2010.
The battery time has also been improved for this phone. You will get upto six weeks standby battery time. Standard flashlight and an FM radio is also present in the phone.
In this phone you can keep both SIMs active at the same time and you can get calls and SMSs from both SIM cards. One SIM sits under the battery and another is “hot-swappable”, a new feature introduced by Nokia. This means you don’t need to turn off your phone to change the SIM.
Nokia C2-00 will be preloaded with Ovi Life Tools and Ovi Mails via Nokia messaging. FM radio and Music player are also present for music lovers.
This phone can support upto 32 GB micro-SD.
