Samsung makes a Galaxy Note II with both micro and regular SIM card slots official in China
We knew that a Samsung Galaxy Note II with two SIM card slots is coming to China soon to integrate the country's different mobile network technologies in one heck of handset, and here it is official.

To sweeten the pot, Samsung has added a regular SIM card slot to the micro SIM one that is in everyone else's Note IIs, and the radios inside support dual standby mode for "GSM 850/900/1, 800/1, 900 MHz and WCDMA 850/900/1, 900/2100 MHz" frequencies simultaneously.

Given the popularity of dual or even triple SIM phones in China - this 5,699 yuan Note II takes care of it all. The price translates to $915 unsubsidized, though, so all that extra connectivity inside doesn't come cheap.

Seems useless for someone like me, but I suppose they did it for a reason. China seems to have a lot of different dual-sim offerings.

Almost everyone in the world is using a SIM card with their phones. Except US of A of course. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subscriber_identity_module
