Doubao Dual-SIM Phone

Chinese cellphone maker Doubao is currently selling the 728, a distinctive cellphone with slots for two SIM cards. The functionality gives it the option of sending and receiving calls from two different phone accounts without swapping phones, including from competing providers. The device is similarly intelligent enough to manage calls based on whichever card is in use: if one of the SIM cards is engaged in a conversation, the remaining card will direct its inbound calls to voice mail.

Its Chinese origin is reflected in its features. The 2.2-inch LCD is touch-sensitive and responds to a stylus for hand-writing Cantonese or Mandarin characters for text messages; it also replaces the number pad for dialing. A VGA camera and a microSD card slot handle media-related tasks. Doubao sells the dual-band GSM phone in continental China as well as Hong Kong and Taiwan for $170. [via MobileWhack]
