Nokia enters Dual SIM Phone Market with C2

Nokia has finally entered the dual SIM phone market with the announcement of C2.

The Nokia C2 can keep both SIM cards active; meaning calls and text messages can come to either number while the phone is on. The first SIM card on the Nokia C2 sits underneath the battery. The second SIM card is ‘hot-swappable’, a feature unique to Nokia, meaning it can be removed and inserted when the phone is on.

The phone is designed for emerging markets and is integrated with Nokia Life Tools service (for information on healthcare, agriculture, education and entertainment) as well as Ovi Mail.

Nokia is losing market share to local companies like Micromax, Karbonn (and ofcourse, BlackCherries of the world) and devices like C2 will probably help them regain the lost market share.

Priced at EURO 45 (i.e. INR 2520) before tax and subsidies, the phone will be launched in Q4, 2010 and apart from basic features (like FM radio/1000 entries for Address Books), the claimed battery life of up to 16.5 days and support for up to 32GB microSD card seems to make it a worthwhile wait.

BlackBerry Curve 9300 Details Leaked

For the past decade, one of the most popular devices in mobile electronics has been Research in Motion’s Blackberry franchise of mobile phones. While the company has frequently released new and updated versions of the phone, they have typically done a good job of keeping knowledge of unreleased phones quiet.

However, it appears that news and details behind the company’s newest phone have been leaked to the general public. Details and pictures of the Blackberry Curve 9300 have been released by an unknown source. The much anticipated phone has been compared by many to the Blackberry 8520. Pictures of the Blackberry Curve 9300 show that the phone will share the same optical track pad, form factor, and keyboard style as the Blackberry 8520. However the Blackberry Curve 9300 has the same screen as the Blackberry 8900 ad Blackberry 9700. Rumors also have it that the pictures that have been leaked are for the US version of the phone only.

While actual operating and marketing details of the new phone is unknown, pictures of the phone do provide some clues to technology experts. The style of the Blackberry Curve 9300 leads many to believe that the phone will be marketed and sold as a middle of the road device. The phone is expected to have access to both WiFi networks as well as 3G networks. While it is believed that the phone will operate on the Blackberry OS 5 operating system, there is a chance that the phone could work off of the much anticipated Blackberry 6 operating system.

Sony Ericsson Shakira Leaked

After the launch of the XPERIA X10, Sony Ericsson entertained us with the launch of the X10 Mini and X10 Mini Pro, two devices smaller than the X10 but still quite feature rich.

Now it seems that they’ve another device planned which is similar to the X10 and even though it is smaller, it will not be as small as the X10 Mini or X10 Mini pro.

It is said to around the same size as the Vivaz. Basically reducing the screen size compared to the X10 so as to get an XPERIA version of the Vivaz.

We think that the other features should remain nearly the same apart from the deduction in screen size. We will keep you up-to-date on any information regarding their handset.
