Stylish Samsung Dual SIM Slider Hits UK

Just what many of us need...

With recent research by First Direct reporting that the UK’s 45m adults share 70m mobile SIM cards Samsung’s latest could have real appeal…

The ‘DuoS D880’ is the first mainstream focused dual sim handset I’ve seen and it lets users operate two sims from different networks or two numbers from the same network. Users can make and receive calls, send and receive text messages and even email and surf the web with user profile settings switching automatically.

Incoming calls, emails and text messages also highlight onscreen from which sim they have come and users can allocate each sim its own ringtone and message sounds.

Beyond this, the D880 is also a rather competent handset in its own right featuring a 2.3in QVGA display, 3.2MP camera, FM tuner and Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP. On the downside there is no 3G and the extra tech required to operate two sims simultaneously bulks it up to 18.9mm thick.

The D880 goes on sale from next month and Sammy has taken the unusual step of revealing its RRP (£350) which may suggest networks have passed it over still working under the misnomer that it is a niche product. Wakey, wakey…
