Top 5 dual SIM phones in India [January 2012]
Nokia 101 – Nokia 101 is designed to woo Nokia’s economy customers. It is claimed to be the cheapest dual-SIM mobile in the world. One thing that sets it apart from other dual-SIM mobiles is that with a unique SIM manager that lets it remember data up to 5 SIM cards. Along with that, it offers a powerful phone speaker, FM and MicroSD support up to 16 GB. It is even endowed with Nokia tools such as Nokia Money, though we do not think they would be of much use to an economy customer. But the star of the handset is undoubtedly, its price tag – Rs.1445 at current prices, which makes it untouchable as far dual-SIM mobiles go.

The Star II Duos C6712 offers a 3.14-inch TFT along with a 3.2- megapixel camera along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and MicroSD support up to 16 GB. One of the features that we liked best was its 13 hours talktime that comes from its 1200 mAh battery. It also supports FM recording and is quite good for social networking. A typical price for this handset it is Rs. 6416.
