  1. Hi Jott! Installing the two SIMs, is easy and so is the operation of them. There is a new dedicated key on the qwerty keyboard to choose between SIMs at any time. As we have said the device is Dual Standby, meaning both SIMs can receive calls at any time but if one SIM is “talking” the other appears unreachable.

  2. What’s the approximate price for this – any info on the price released? It will be good if a dual sim entry level smart phone is released in India too…
