Hi..as per specs on viewsonic homepage, 3g(band 2100) is possible only on Sim1, and not on Sim2-so how it can have both 3g network capability on both sims?
this is very important, since I transit between Japan & Korea, and both are 3g networks only.
Awaiting expert advise !
http://www.expansys-usa.com/ has pulled the phone, ebay has a copy cat MUCHTEL A2
This phone is hard to find, and the merchants who actually do carry it tend to be incompetent. The following wiki makes an effort list vendors selling it, and what their issues are:
That wiki is non-commercial, in the sense that it's just buyers trying to collaborate on how to get this phone.
Calld viewsonic sales and marketing section in uk, dey said dey lookin forward to launch it in mid july arnd 15 a lady comformed, however I am nt sure as before it was said to b out in june. But hey as far as dey say shud b out this month
I found offers on that phone on German market so far.
price around 250 Euro, more details below
But still date when it will be available is not given.
I am still waiting for this! Anybody know when will be purchased? And how much??
I emailed Viewsonic to find out when and where this will be available to buy - no response. Vapourware?
I hope it will be on the market soon. For weeks i'm waiting for it.
Can someone recomend a good dual sim android phone - even with the mtk chipset
bang, 07 Jun 2011probably if this was a lg or samsung phone everybody was speaking about it.
just find amazing... moreThe first dual-sim Android was General Mobile DSTL1 in 2009. Since then no other phone appeared until end of year 2010 when many Chinese phones with MTK6516 chipset started selling. Now there are on the market phones with the faster MSM7227 or MSM7225 chipset, like this ViewSonic has.
But still there is no dual-sim Android with ARMv7 CPU, except of Motorola's GSM+CDMA model.
probably if this was a lg or samsung phone everybody was speaking about it.
just find amazing finally someone developed a dual sim android.
I saw this device on Computex 2011 (Taiwan)
so, what i know:
Firstly... only one sim card slot supporting 3G network
Wi-fi 802.11 b/g. N standard not supporting
Android 2.2, ver 2.3 or higher not planned
Camera: no flash (I think in the evening or at night, shooting will be problematic.)
Battery: not enough for more than one day
you are saying this is it ...what is it..some company will come with the better dual sim phone
francis, 01 Jun 2011i wanted dual sim so badly... is this it?Let me google it out....
waiting for it, why you (GSMARENA)didn't put this phone on your site like the other brands
