Nokia C2 with Dual-SIM Capability Announced

Nokia [NOK] has announced the Nokia C2 dual-SIM mobile phone. The target market for the C2 is the developing world. As the dual-SIM suggests, the device is capable of running two SIM cards at the same time.

What this exactly means is that the Nokia C2 can receive texts and calls to either SIM at the same time giving you two numbers to work from perhaps with one SIM card having the better deal on text messages and the other card having a better deal on voice calls.

What makes this even better is that the second SIM card is hot-swappable allowing it to be removed and another put in place while the phone is switched on.

Although this wont be useful to some people who have a good deal on their monthly plan, for some (especially PAYG customers) this is great news. I often saw friends switching their SIM cards around when wanting to text.

Other features of the Nokia C2 include information on healthcare, agriculture, educationo and entertainment through the Nokia Ovi Life Tools service. Email is also available on the C2 through the Ovi Mail service.

Other features include a 16.5 days battery standby time, a VGA camera, Bluetooth, GPRS and it costs ‚¬45 before tax and subsidies making it a very good price.

It is set to launch in the fourth quarter of this year.
