Dual SIM aficionados can breathe little easier now. We are picking up chatter that Motorola is bringing a dual SIM Android phone to India. Motorola Glam XT800 is a dual SIM (GSM+CDMA) 3G phone with 3.7 inch capacitive touch screen. It has a HDMI port, 5 megapixel camera, GPS and WiFi. Motorola Glam has 256 MB RAM and runs on a 550MHz TI processor.
The specs are not confirmed yet and are collated from various sources. Motorola already has 7 Android phones in the Indian market. This is apparently an old phone launched in China and South Korea in August of 2010. Also an improved version of the phone running 1GHz processor is launched. Not sure why Motorola is recycling the phones which are already launched elsewhere.
To start with this is an old phone running a slow processor. The dual SIM could not be much of a use as there are few CDMA operators in India. A dual SIM (GSM+GSM) has proved to be a super hit among Indian consumers. Either Motorola did not learn from Nokia’s failure and Micromax success or it is just trying to test the waters. Either way the phone might not just work in India. We will soon know, but launching an old phone in India – not cool. India’s is no country for old phones.
