Damager: Anyone running a dual sim thing like the one below? Or know of the next best alternative available in NZ via TradeMe?
ive done a bit of hunting into the dual sim world as the GF has wanted a "work sim and home sim" on one handset option since forever.
almost all dualsim handsets are dual 2G only, which is useless... the best we could find was the Samsung B7722 which offers 3G on sim1 and 2G on sim2. the OS is not android, but i guess samsungs own touchwiz style proprietary interface which looks almost exactly the same. has a dedicated sim swap button on the side, you can send from either sim easily, recieve from both at the same time, for both calls and sms, set different ring tones etc to differentiate, rah rah. actually was a very powerful semi smartphone for what it is, and worked really well.
can do all the android style things like multiple homescreens, widget adding, etc. but no market, just built in widgets. hence semi-smartphone.
we actually have it for sale now as she has decided to take the leap into the world of android, and picked up a Galaxy Ace - so if youre interested let me know
The only other proper ANDROID based dual sim 3G smartphone was the Viewsonic V350 announced like in february or something, looked amazing, but since then not a word about it, so who knows when or if it will ever come out.
