Nokia Unveils Two-Sim Solution
Consistent with its reputation for churning out innovative products for its respective customer segments, Nokia World's leading manufacturer of mobile devices has unveiled a two-sim phone, which has already hit the Ghanaian market. Known as the Nokia C1, the device is the most affordable amongst its competitive peers across brands. It is also the first Nokia mobile phone to feature a 2-in-1 double SIM solution.
General Manager of Nokia West Africa, Philip De-La-Vega said the move validates the fact that Nokia is a listening brand that will continually seek ways to surpass the expectations of its customers. He said by simply holding down a key, people are able to switch between SIM cards. This according to Philip enables them to take advantage of reduced call rates, flexibility when traveling from one country to another, or helps with sharing a phone within a family and still use their own SIM.
Nokia C1 owners will also benefit from a standby battery time of up to six weeks, the longest ever for a Nokia mobile phone, especially useful in those areas where access to electricity is sometimes limited. On the Nokia C3 phone, the standard flashlight - often someone's only means of bright light - is paired with a vivid color screen and FM radio with standard headphone jack, meaning the Nokia C1 is as much about entertainment as it is about convenience.
