Gigabyte Bringing Dual-SIM Support to Android Via Gsmart Rola. #android #gigabyte


Today, leading hardware manufacturer Gigabyte announced plans to release their new Android-powered Gsmart Rola dual-SIM capable phone into several European and Asian markets starting in 2011. The hardware isn’t anything to write home about — 528MHz processor, 3.2-inch resistive WQVGA display, 256MB RAM/512MB ROM, 3.2-megapixel camera, and Android 2.2 (Froyo). Clearly, the novelty with the Gsmart Rola resides in the dual-SIM capabilities, giving globe trotters that extra bit of convenience when traveling across the continent.

Here in the U.S., the novelty of dual-SIM cellphones hasn’t really caught on. Overseas however, cellular customers have quite a bit more options as well as cellular competition. Not to mention, because of the close proximity of many different countries, the overall process of SIM-swapping and jumping between mobile carriers is understandably more common.

The Gigabyte Gsmart Rola will cost €175 and go on sale in select European and Asian markets in early 2011.
