Dual-SIM Samsung Star Duos is the first to support 3G & 2G dual-active standby1
Their latest effort comes in the form of the Samsung Star Duos which is being regarded as the first dual-SIM handset to support both 2G and 3G dual-active standby. Although it might not radiate enough for the intense business user since it's not a smartphone, it'll nonetheless prove to be an attractive option for those who would rather travel light – while still being able to retain two phone numbers on one device. The Samsung Star Duos features a 3.2” touchscreen, 5-megapixel camera with power LED flash, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, FM radio, SNS support, DNSe audio enhancing technology, TouchWiz 2.0 interface, 9 regional language support, and 250MB of internal storage which can be supplemented with its microSD card slot.
Relatively considered a quaint market, Samsung is extremely adamant about this fledgling market since dual-SIM handsets made up 38.5 percent of mobile sales in the last quarter in India. This device, too, will be making its presence known in India first seeing that there is demand for it there and will retail for 12,300 Rupees ($274).
