Samsung W599, the Latest Dual SIM Phone

Samsung unveiled these days another dual SIM mobile phone, Samsung W599 (or Samsung SCH-W599), which will first be launched in China. The South Korean company seems to give
a special attention to dual SIM devices, as these are currently very popular in Asia and they could also become "wanted" in Europe and the US.

The new W599 comes in a compact candybar form factor, and its navigation keys are interestingly integrated as to form a circle. The phone does not have a hardware keypad, hence most of the data input is made through its 2.4 inch touchscreen display with 260K colors, a QVGA (240 x 320) resolution and handwriting recognition. Samsung W599 can operate on both CDMA and GSM networks and comes with dual SIM technology, allowing you to use two SIM cards at the same time, just like you would have owned two phones. Except these more than welcome features, Samsung W599 also offers FM radio, Music and Video players, Bluetooth, email, Instant Messaging, Wap browser, a 2 Megapixel camera, embedded games, 34MB of internal memory and microSD card support for several extra GBs. The phone measures 103.1 x 53 x 16.4 millimeters and includes a 1200 mAh Li-Ion battery that should provide a decent talk-time / stand-by time.

Samsung W599 will soon be available across China, branded under the AnyCall series, for a retail price of 4,490 yuan. This means around $640 or 405 Euro, which is kind of expensive. But then again, most of the dual-SIM handsets have a "higher than normal" price, and W599 is far from being an entry-level device after all.
