We have Dell, Acer, Nvidia, Intel, and now ASUS making phones and most of them use Android. Wow, never noticed it until now. :)

Yeah symbian sucks so much which is why it corners nearly half the market for OS...why even mention symbian in this article when they are talking about froyo and windows 6.5 for this handset

I shall purchase this phone as soon as it is available. I thought dual sim for Android would never happen. Thank you Gigabyte for making this phone, I hope it is a great success. Gigabyte by the way makes great motherboards for PC's.

Oh oh! I'll add, DUAL OSes. Hahaha! The first company who will put that kind of will rule the whole mobile phone industry! Talk about the best of both worlds! How about Android-WP, Android-Symbian, Symbian-Maemo, Android-Maemo. I'll never get out of choices. :)

Wow!
At first there were phones with dual sims, then dual speakers, now dual cores. What's next? Dual screens? Dual backflip? Dual batteries? Hehe I love technology.
