Samsung D880 Duos

Till now, if you wanted to use two SIM cards from different operators or two phone numbers from the same operator, you had to carry two different mobile phones. All this is now a thing of the past. Samsung has come up with a new cell phone - D880 Duos, which can support up to 2 SIM cards, at the same time. Though the secondary SIM can be used only for telephony and messaging, it is much better than the bother of carrying two handsets. With this, Samsung has become the first major mobile phone manufacturer to offer this technology.

Design
While introducing the new technology, Samsung made sure not to compromise on the design and looks. D880 Duos is a slider phone, available in just one color i.e. Noble Black. The cell phone has dimensions of 104 x 51 x 18.9 mm, making it quite sleek and compact. The weight of hardly 116 gm further adds to the slim look of the mobile phone. All the covers have been made of plastic, while the battery cover has a soft rubber-like matt finish. The conventional looking phone also has dark-brown glossy accents on the top and bottom of the slider.
 
D880 Duos has sliver accents, though their use has been limited to quite an extent. The large 2.3" TFT screen of QVGA resolution, capable of displaying up to 256K colors, is followed by the navigation pad, provided below. As you slide-up the phone, the alphanumeric pad will come into view. The camera shutter key and the connectivity port have been placed under plastic cover. The volume rocker key and the dedicated dual-SIM management key have been provided at the left-hand side of the Samsung D880.
