Samsung Galaxy S Duos official for those who like to "juggle work and play" with two SIM cards at once
Samsung today made the Galaxy S Duos official, with a launch that will premiere in Europe next month, and a worldwide rollout to follow. The US might see the dual SIM handset also, as it recently passed through the FCC approval stables.
The handset's main selling point is that it resembles the Galaxy S III design... ok, not really - it's the "Always On" two SIM cards that can be used at once, to "juggle work and play", as Samsung puts it, or simply to take advantage of a cheap data-only plan while you use another SIM for talk and text, or get calls for both cards at once, whatever rocks your boat.
Dual SIM handsets are the bee's knees in emerging markets, so Samsung gave the Galaxy S Duos the looks, but kept it on the down low with the specs, and likely the price of the light and compact handset. A 4" WVGA screen, 1GHz processor, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage are not exactly mind-boggling, but a 5MP shooter with LED flash on the back and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich ensure you still get a pretty decent handset with dual active standby SIM capabilities.
Take a gander at how it compares to the other dual SIM phones out there in our slideshow below, pretty favorable, eh?
