Ok, the question is straight and simple ‘Why doesn’t Nokia introduce any Dual Sim mobile?’
The answer though may not be that simple, at least for Nokia to concern about. Nokia as a corporation may know which field yields best results and that may be the reason for its foray into Netbooks market recently. Nokia booklet 3G is designed to be a Netbook but the price of $800 makes it a comfortable notebook computer.
But I’m afraid; Nokia got it absolutely wrong in thinking that there is no market for dual Sim mobiles.
Consider the case of India which is the second largest mobile market in the world after china with nearly 400 million mobile phone users. Currently Dual Sim mobiles are a craze here. No wonder with the ultra low calling charges of different operators in different segments, subscribers want to take full advantage of each Operator. Like, Mr.Anil uses Airtel for making cheap STD calls but uses Reliance for making local calls. Also he may use another Sim for only Business purpose. Sure that he can have multiple mobiles just like multiple Sim cards but having a Dual Sim mobiles does make the work much simple.
Consider my case. I have been using Airtel for nearly 4 years but very recently, I’ve been taken away by the 1 second pulse of Tata Docomo. But this transformation takes a lot of time. I can easily bet that my Airtel number is in the contacts list of at least 1000 people besides those hundreds of cold calling marketers and when it comes to my new Docomo number, no one knows it except me. Different People try calling me at my old number and I keep giving them my new number. And now I’m looking for a nice Dual sim mobile but I cannot find any trusted brand like Nokia.
When Does Nokia understand my problems?
