While cheap dual SIM phones are a dime a dozen, high end dual SIM devices are still somewhat of a rarity. The just launched Samsung B7722 Duos attempts to address this deficiency. It is a GSM phone in which one SIM can run on 3G while the other must operate on GPRS/EDGE.
The full touch Duos deploys a 3.2 inch touchscreen with 256K colors and 240 x 400 pixels. It has a capable 5 mega-pixel camera with LED flash, which snaps pictures at a resolution of 2592Ñ…1944, and records QVGA videos at 30fps. As expected from a high end phone, the B7722 supports plenty of multimedia formats including MP3, WAV, WMA, eAAC+, MP4, H.263 and H.264. Although it lacks GPS support, Google Maps and Mobile tracker are included. Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP, Push Email, Instant Messaging and MicroSD cards up to 8 GB are also supported.
The Duos will cost $510 in the US and is slated to be launched later this month in Sweden. It’s not known when it will be launched in India, but it is expected to cost around Rs. 23,000.
