After the unexpected success of the first Samsung Galaxy Note ‘phablet’ (phone+tablet), the Korean electronic giant is getting even more serious about Galaxy Note II, especially in China, which is soon to become the biggest smartphone market in the world. Galaxy Note II was announced a week ago in Berlin. Samsung has a special version of the second generation Note in China, which has a dual-SIM card support. The special version has built-in 2 SIM card slots, one for normal SIM and one for microSIM. It supports WCDMA+GSM radio network and dual standby. Other specs of the device will remain the same. This dual-SIM Galaxy Note 2 seems to be headed for China Unicom, though it is still not clear when will it be available and how much will it cost. So why the Chinese needs dual-SIM support for their smartphone ?
Dual-SIM capabilities could appeal in countries where handset costs push some to share handsets, which is one of the uses of a dual-SIM device. One look at the targeted countries like China for the new Galaxy smartphones illustrates this. One phone can easily be used by two or more people thanks to the multiple SIM functionality. Corporate employees in China have begun to carry two mobile devices; one provided by their employer for work purposes and their own handset of choice for personal use. Carrying two phones isn’t optimal, so one device that can separate work activities from personal ones has appeal. A dual-SIM smartphone will separating voice and messaging communications between personal and work modes.
