Motorola Launches the Glam, India's First Dual-Sim Android Smartphone

Remember when we told you about Motorola planning on launching their Dual-Sim Android smartphone in India? Well, it's now official. The Motorola XT800 Glam will be making its way to our shores and will be the first Dual-Sim Android phone to release here.

Another first for Motorola

The Glam has one GSM and one CDMA slot, so users have some flexibility in terms of choices for phone and data functions. The 3.7-inch (854x480) touchscreen phone also has an HDMI-out port, GPS and a 5 megapixel camera. Bluetooth, Wi-fi, 3G, EDGE and GPRS round up the connectivity options for the phone which is supposedly coming pre-loaded with Android 2.2 Froyo.

Motorola Mobility India Country Head Faisal Siddiqui, speaking on the launch, had this to say. "We have specially designed the Milestone XT800 to provide infotainment-on-the-go for consumers who want a device that matches the demands of a hectic lifestyle like that of a senior professional."

The phone will be priced at Rs. 31,999 which seems like quite a rip-off to me, because Motorola have already released an upgraded version of the phone, the XT800+, in China. So they're essentially pawning off old stock at a premium, which seems rather excessive to me, but the phone does have a lot of features so maybe it might just be worth it. But I guess we'll have to wait until we get our hands on the device to figure that out.
