The Chinese Dual SIM phones are very popular in India, And the market of Dual Sim Phones is emerging. People like to have Dual SIM phone for a number of reasons including different services from Operators. And our government seems unresponsive about Number Portability in India. But now Nokia also jumped in the dual SIM handset market with the launch of Nokia C1 (C1-00, C1-01, C1-02) & C2 Models in India on Monday. Nokia C1 is the entry level model, but C2 has some more advanced features which will be available later this year.

Both the phone models support multiphone book, extra long battery life. But Nokia C1 supports one active SIM at a time, you can switch to different SIM by the dedicated key for it. You can also divert all calls of one SIM to another SIM so you don't miss a single call. Whereas Nokia C2 supports dual SIM with dual Standby.
