To regain its lost market share Nokia has launched two dual SIM mobile phones in India. Desi handset companies launched dual SIM phones long back and it was an instant hit. Major brands like Samsung followed it and tasted success with their dual SIM handsets but Nokia failed to understand the mindset of common Indian mobile user.
In India most of the subscribers hold at least two SIMs as getting a SIM card is cheap and easy. Since different mobile service providers offers different tariff structure people accumulate SIM cards from many providers to get the best options available in the market. That boosted the importance of Dual SIM Phones.
But finally now Nokia also coming up with their own Dual SIM models.
