Olive telecommunications defies common needs, launches triple-SIM cellphone

I don’t really have much need for a one phone number save for a place to send text messages, simply because I hate talking on the phone. Two phone numbers is overkill, and three is senseless — at least in my eyes. But for a few select (probably 1-2) users on Olive Communications in India, they will now have the ability to yuck it up on up to three separate phone lines thanks to the Wiz V-GC800 triple-SIM phone. Yes, that’s three separate phone lines for one phone.

As far as looks are concerned, there’s not much to see here. Moving past the outer shell into the meat of the device doesn’t leave much sense of fullness either. With specs such as full QWERTY keypad, integrated instant messaging and social networking, 2mp camera, and up to 4GB of memory, it’s clear this isn’t a feature packed “geek phone” in the truest sense. But at $115 USD, it would be hard to pass up if you like to talk — I guess.

Why would anyone need three lines tied to one device? In the phone’s defense, it allows 2 GSM lines and 1CDMA line which if you think about it, is pretty useful. If I had the ability to get such a thing stateside, I’d consider it given the fact that I could flip flop between CDMA (mainly Verizon) and GSM (T-Mobile) when I needed to.

Getting back to mere physical appearance, since the phone itself isn’t too much to look at, it’s rather disappointing that this tech “went to waste” for lack of better words. If the triple-SIM wave caught on — and here’s the kicker — carriers didn’t charge half a torso for one line, let alone three on a single phone, we might see such geekery as this really take off and triple-SIM compatible phones take new and exciting forms.

For the near term however it looks to be nothing more than a novelty, or at the very least, a bragging point for Olive Telecommunications.

Would you purchase/use a triple-SIM phone?
