Like the Samsung Duo that we were privileged to see here first with Tata Indicom, Samsung has launched a similar handset for Europe. The name doesn’t seem to have undergone a major change as it’s called the DuoS.
The DuoS is a Tri-Band GSM device. For connectivity it’s equipped with EDGE, and Bluetooth with A2DP compatibility. This slider has a 2.3 inch QVGA display (no touchscreen) and will allow a user to use two separate service providers with two separate SIM cards and again you can switch providers without having to switch the phone off. The good thing is that all incoming calls will also show which SIM card it’s coming though. So you’ll able to effectively keep your personal and business life separate. The DuoS also has 3.2 megapixel auto-focus camera and an integrated FM Radio. It can also use microSD cards for memory expansion and it's possible that it would also have a business card reader.
The DuoS will hit Europe in November and the price is estimated to be around Rs. 27,000 ($700).
