Date: August 20th, 2012

During 2011, Nokia finally realized the ever growing demand of low budget dual SIM phones among youth and low salaried workers in both developed and developing nations, such as Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and other African and Asian countries.

The real demand and market for dual SIM handsets increased when Chinese manufacturers started to develop these phones and export them to developing countries, the trend of low budget dual purpose phones started to hype up and eat up market share of Nokia. Eventually Nokia started to release their own versions of dual SIM phones, which no doubt are better than most of low quality Chinese brands.

Even though Nokia is struggling in the smartphone market, their is grip on low-end market that is strong. We have compiled a comprehensive list of dual SIM Nokia mobiles. The list below covers pricing information and specifications.

    Where is Nokias dual sim with a 3G card ?
    It is a sad story knowing that Nokia had every opportunity to be ahead with touchscreen and all the other gadgets we see nowadays. But some boardmembers ! thought they knew better………. Let us hope that they catch up as they do show us eye-candy now and then.

    I’ve had my X2-02 for nearly two years it is not the best for picking up signals and has one or two niggles but it is generally ok. A friend picked it up for me in India for approximately £47, not a bad price. it’s a shame that they are difficult to get hold of in the UK as quite a few of my friends would like one. They are very useful in rural areas where signal strengths and coverage vary. I have one SIM on each frequency this gives the best coverage. I would like a good solid 3G dual SIM smartphone but there only one or two available and the reviews are not the best.
