amsung has launched three new dual SIM phones in India, expanding its dual SIM phone offerings in the country. They are called Samsung Star Duos GT-B7722, Guru Dual 25 and Guru Dual 26, and are all of the GSM+GSM handsets.
Samsung Star Duos GT-B7722
The Samsung Star Duos GT-B7722 is supposedly the first 3G + 2G dual-standby touchscreen phone ever, has a 5MP autofocus camera with power LED flash, and costs Rs. 12,300. Other features of the dual SIM phone include 250MB internal memory, microSD expandable up to 16GB, TouchWiz 2.0 interface, multi-language dictionary, Phone Book 2000, Active Sync, WAP, MMS, e-mail, and a document viewer for Microsoft Office and PDF files. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, Wi-Fi and microUSB 2.0. The phone also has FindMusic and SoundAlive features, as well as dedicated social networking widgets.
Samsung Guru Dual 25 (GT- E1225) and Dual 26 (GT -E 1252)
Unlike the Star Duos GT-B7722, the two Samsung Guru Dual 25 and Guru Dual 26 are entry level phones, costing Rs. 2,020 and Rs. 2,240 respectively. By doing this, Samsung is ready to take on the many inexpensive dual SIM handsets from Lemon,Karbonn and others and now of course, Nokia. Neither of them feature dual standby modes, so only one SIM can be active at a time.
Both phones have stereo FM radio, torch, games, mobile prayer, Indian calendar, 40 polyphonic ring tones, SOS message, bike mode features, nine Indian languages, 3.5 mm jack, and a 1000 contacts phonebook. The Guru Dual 25 has a 1.8-inch QQVGA TFT display and an 800mAH battery which offers 9 hours of talk time and 420 hours of standby time. The Guru Dual 26 has a 2-inch QQVGA TFT display and a 1000mAh battery that offers 11 hours of talk time and 620 hours in standby mode.
