one sim slot for everyday phone calls and sms. another is for unlimited data plan services. i've told sony ericsson the reason for making dual sim phone especially for asian - indonesian, but they ignore it. as we in indonesia doesn't have to unlock carrier provider. we are here free of choice to buy phone what we want and uses carrier services the one we like or you just can change your number anytime you like. and dual sim for my purpose is to use one slot as regular phone functions such as calls and sms and the other one is for monthly data plan services.
and now, dual sims become debatable but for me it is a must so no need to spent more for usb modem as i can use my dual sims phone to handle both.

Why couldn't they make, or do that with the S3, and charge the public an extra £50 or £100....

So this is supposed to have ICS and TouchWiz with only 512MB RAM? If they can get this going without much troubles, then I don't see why the original Galaxy S devices don't get ICS.
