Of course the Nokia X Android is dual SIM too
Well the rumour mill has shot into overdrive with a leak of what will almost certainly be the first dual SIM Windows Phone 8.1 (WP8) handset – a Nokia Lumia. The leak’s source appears to be the Chinese web site Baidu – here. The big money is that the device – probably codenamed Moneypenny, will be the the Lumia 630 whilst the Lumia 635 will be a single SIM version. We’re not quite sure why so many observers are saying it is based on the Lumia 620 when the 630 very definitely has a 4.5 inch screen with 854 x 480 pixels. We thought the 620 had a 3.81 inch screen so how can the 630 be based on it? Continue reading

Over 55 million families owned at least one Apple product in 2012. What’s more, 10 per cent of households without Apple products planned to join the ‘in crowd’ in 2013. I predict that this trend isn’t about to end any time soon (not shortly). To discover what else you can expect from Apple in 2014, read on. I believe we’ll see an iPhone 6; the iWatch; and an iPad Pro. Continue reading
As International vendors weigh, local producers redouble their efforts
Even just a year ago, dual SIM devices were exclusively manufactured by relatively unknown manufacturers seeking to gain a foothold in their home markets. That isn’t the case any longer. With a decline in the growth of the high-end market, it is the entry-level and mid-tier segments that handset manufacturers are now targeting. And they’re getting into dual SIM handsets big time as we saw during MWC week. Continue reading
A challenge to BlackBerry’s grip on the sector
Here at GoMo News we’re not quite sure why an aircraft manufacturer, Boeing, is indulging in specifying its own design for an Android smartphone that supports secure communications, but as usual this a website filing gave the game away.
