MANILA, Philippines - Nokia announced last week two new dual-SIM handsets — the Nokia X1-01 and the Nokia C2-00 — both of which would soon be on sale in the Philippines.
Both models offer convenient and intuitive experience available for switching between SIM cards without compromising on features and fun.
“The Nokia X1-01 and Nokia C2-00 pack more memory, better battery life and far richer SIM change and entertainment features than other dual-SIM products currently in the market,” said Benoit Nalin, general manager of Nokia Philippines.
“In addition to their various unique features, both of these phones remember the settings for up to five separate SIM cards, each of which can be personalized with a dedicated name as well as preferred call, SMS or data settings. Only Nokia can offer this level of convenience in dual-SIM phones,” Nalin added.
With the Nokia X1-01, users can give each SIM card its own logo, music signature or ringtone — personalization features exclusive only from Nokia.
The phone also aims to offer the best dual-SIM music experience in the market. Users can store and shuffle thousands of songs with up to 16GB of microSD memory card support, create users’ own favorite playlists, and play music back over a loudspeaker that is the loudest and clearest ever produced by Nokia.
The phone, which runs on Nokia’s Series 30 platform, also features dedicated music side keys and a battery that will last for up to 36 hours of continued music playback.
The Nokia X1-01 is available in dark gray, red, ocean blue, and orange.
The Nokia C2-00, on the other hand, is the first dual-SIM phone to have Easy Swap, which offers users the convenience of changing SIM cards without the need to turn off the phone or remove the battery.
Just open the SIM door at the side of the phone and swap the SIMs. It’s as easy as that, with no more waiting for the phone to reboot.
With the Series 40 Nokia C2-00, users can also browse the Internet, read e-mails and enjoy instant messaging with either SIM card.
Not only is the Internet browsing experience far superior than that available on competing dual-SIM phones, but so too is the memory support. At a whopping 32GB of microSD card support, the Nokia C2-00 lets users keep thousands of photos, videos and music files all the time.
The Nokia C2-00 is available in dynamic gray, jet black, magenta, and snow white.
The Nokia X1-01 has a suggested retail price of P1,990 while the Nokia C2-00 retails for P2,990.
