Nokia First Dual Sim in india

Nokia has released their first Dual SIM phone C2  and C1-100

Nokia C1-100                      


By simply holding down a key, people are able to switch between SIM cards, meaning that they can take advantage of reduced call rates, flexibility when traveling from one country to another, or being able to share a phone within a family and still use their own SIM card. This is a great added convenience feature, considering the low price of the phone.”

The model C1 is a dual SIM handset, but only one SIM will work at a time. Simultaneous operation is not possible. You have to switch between the SIM cards for usage. The only advantage is that no physical SIM change is required.
C1-100 is a Series 30 device, comes with a s/by battery backup of 6 weeks, 500 phonebook entries and the standard features like FM Radio with 3.5 mm jack. The model will be available in blue, red, light grey and green colours , expected to be available by third quarter of 2010.

 This handset is proposed to be available by the third quarter of 2010 at a price, a little over Rs 2090

Same as of standard Dual SIM handsets Nokia C2  offers the simultaneous usage of two SIM cards, means the incoming calls and text messages can be received to either number while the phone is on.  The unique feature in this Dual SIM handset is the “hot –swappable” SIM card feature- This facilitates  removal and insertion of SIM card when the phone is on.
